Have your students make a mini-book for a frog life cycle. Each page illustrates part of the life cycle and includes an assessment page where they put the cycle together themselves. At the end, children have a book of learning to take home. The lesson packet includes teacher guide and background, student pages for the book, rubric for scoring, sample student work, and a measurement activity.
