Do you know the differences between Frogs and Toads? Did you know that Toads walk because of their short hind legs? I learned a lot about Frogs and Toads when I was researching my unit on Frogs and Toads. Many of your students read the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel so why not add a non-fiction unit and compare fictional frogs and toads to real ones. Here is a great picture book to teach the life cycle of a frog.I found quite a long list of Non-fiction books at Amazon which you can access by clicking on the picture below.
One of my first products that I created was called "Leaping with Frogs and Toads". 2012 was a leap year so the original product had a reading text about Leap Year. I have learned so much about creating materials and revised it leaving out the Leap Year materials and then I just revised it again in April of 2014. I have added 15 new pages to the 2nd edition. Here is a preview of all the new materials and activities:
I have put together a free packet called Compare and Contrast Real and Fictional Frogs and Toads which you can download by clicking on the picture below. It has 2 Compare and Contrast Venn diagrams and Writing Paper. Comparing and Contrasting 2 Books is also an ELA CCSS.
