To learn about evolution, students create a flipbook showing the evolutionary changes in frog species from 250 million years ago until now. Students will first read an article about the description of the fossils of each species, and they will infer what the frogs of that time period looked like. In their flipbook, they will draw a picture of what the frogs looked like every 50 million years. They will have five pictures in their flip books.
