Students learn about frogs
GFJ third- through fifth-grade students in Laura Karlson’s integrated class have been learning about the wide world of frogs, and not just the outside of a frog but the inside as well.
They have been studying how frog adaptations help the frog survive in their habitat and looked at the different physical and behavioral adaptations of several frogs, including bullfrogs and poison dart frogs.
To add to this unit, UEHS biology teacher Doug Barnes visited students for a frog dissection. Barnes showed how the frog has adapted its body to help it survive. As Barnes dissected the frog, he showed students its internal organs, how these organs function and how they are similar and different from humans. They were also able to touch the frog and its other parts. It was an engaging opportunity that students thoroughly enjoyed!
