The last two downloads in this section can be used as mini-books to add to your notebooking pages (the small mini-books fit into the illustration boxes of the frog study pages – also below).

There are lots of different uses for them!

      Thank you for such a nice comment! I’m glad you like this study! The files are separate because when I added them to my site last year I couldn’t add larger files. However I can now and will most likely create a file for one download. Thanks for making me aware of it — some things get forgotten :) Thanks also for stopping by my blog!

      Thanks Amie! I’m planning to create one file for download soon. I’m glad you like and hope the study works well for you and your boys! Thanks for stopping by :)

    WOW! This is amazing! I cannot imagine how long this took you….well, maybe I can imagine because I tried to put together a unit on frog & toads after reading Arnold Lobel’s series by that name and it took me forever to gather materials from various sites! Now I see you had already done all the work….we will definitely be re-visiting this subject! Have you put together more of these “all inclusive” topical studies?

    This is a wonderful unit of study for April! I teach at a private school for children with emotional, mental and learning handicaps. This unit is easily adapted for use with multiple levels of ability with few modifications.
    Thank you!

    I am interested in this Frog unit study. We’ve never done notebooking and I’m not sure what to do with all the “blank” boxes. It looks like where pictures should go? We are not very good at drawing and where do I go for pictures or know exactly what needs to go in the boxes?
