We marked the date we welcomed the tadpoles into the classroom so we could see how long it took for them to turn into frogs. When they do, we'll look back and count the number of days the lifecycle took to complete.
Many children spent much of their playtime at the science table watching the little tadpoles swim and eat lettuce.
We placed some scientific props at the center to help encourage the children's exploration and play. The children were especially drawn to the little plastic frogs and the books about frogs. This child set up the frogs to comfort the tadpoles, in case they were scared by their new surroundings.
