Save the Frogs Mrs. Granger's C1 Family

This project of ours all started on the playground at Pike Road Schools in August 2016. There were frogs EVERYWHERE and our kids were enjoying observing them and moving them to a safer area so they wouldn't get stepped on. One day I heard someone say, "I wonder why there are so many frogs on the playground?" It was the driving question to begin our project. Now this is not exactly a question that Google can answer which is why we really had to learn more about frogs in order to come to a conclusion. At first we decided, through expert speakers and research, that it might be their mating season or as the kids like to say, "they were trying to find a girlfriend." Our driving question shifted toward saving them when one learner found the website savethefrogs.com. This website played a very big part in our learning and planning. It was there that we found the video, created by the organization's founder Dr. Kriger, that made many of us sad and we decided we needed to do our part to SAVE THE FROGS and other amphibians of our world! We decided that the best way to tell others about the importance of frogs was to host our very own Save the Frogs Day at our school and that is exactly what we did! Join us in our efforts to SAVE THE FROGS!
