From The Developer:
As teachers we know how much children are fascinated with real animals. We used photographs of live critters rather than drawings or clipart for this presentation.
We have teaching backgrounds and authored several dozen children's books related to using critters in the classroom. We are using our experience and our biology background to provide information about keeping and using frog eggs and tadpoles in the classroom.
Standards for Science and Math including:
• Life cycles and adaptations of living things to their environment.
• Scientific investigations and collecting data.
