Frog Eggs

This week we put some frog eggs we found in a puddle into an aquarium. The kids have been checking them frequently throughout class. We played a new Animal Game in which every one gets a card with an image of an animal that lives in the area such as a snake, rabbit, owl, or bee. There are two of each animal.

Chris set out a board with different natural objects such as a bone, moss, rock, stick, geode, etc. and when the children closed their eyes he would remove an object. When they opened their eyes they figure out which one is missing. Everyone took turns hiding the object and adding more to the board. We also tapped a Maple tree to collect sap for syrup, which we plan to eat with pancakes next week! The kids helped drill the holes. The little creek basin has been a favorite place to play lately. We've been having creek picnics, sinking in the "quicksand", and throwing big rocks in the deepest part. There is alwa
