(1) Frogs

Explore frogs at local waterways as part of an excursion and encourage students to write and draw about their experience, this will enhance their writing and artistic skills. Incorporate Technology into this exercise by asking students to complete Teaching Treasures online activity.

You may like to explain to students that certain types of frogs are often bred, killed and used in Scientific and Medical experiments. Discuss students' feelings about these procedures and if they think it is necessary. Can students suggest an alternative, living sacrifice other than frogs for the advancement of knowledge?

Obtain books showing clear pictures of different frog species. Discuss the life-cycle of a frog.
