Teach about Reptiles and Amphibians while teaching quantitative comparisons using the vocabulary "Less" "More" and "Equal" and qualitative concepts "Brown" and "Green".
Sorting Reptiles: Use the reptiles on page 2 and the environments on pp 3-5 to discuss reptiles and where they live, as well as, common attributes (shell, tail, scales, claws, etc.). (Wetland-turtle, bullfrog, alligator; Rainforest-tree frog, chameleon, boa; Desert-rattlesnake, Gila monster, tortoise)
Sorting Colors: Use the bullfrogs on page 6 and the ponds on page 7 to sort the frogs by color-green/brown.
Less/More /Equal: Use the ponds on page 7 and the objects on page 8. Put quantities of the objects in the ponds and have students tell which pond has more/less/equal. The labels (less/more/equal) can be used to teach the vocabulary as well as, to label after the items have been placed. Print additional copies of page 8, if needed, to increase quantities.
Follow Directions: with single or mixed concepts: “Give the brown frog more flies than the green frog.” “Put more lily pads in this pond and less in that pond.” “Give me a reptile that can swim/hop/has sharp teeth/has a shell, etc.”
