My Homeschool Hi-Light - Frogspawn


This week, on our nature walk, we found frogspawn in a pond. We collected some and carried it back home in a bucket. Now, we're going to wait and see what happens. This was such an exciting treasure to find - definitely a homeschool hi-light. Nature Mama has photos and information about frogspawn on her blog. She has a really neat photo of her child holding the gelatinous spawn that contains hundreds of eggs. What are we going to do with this many frogs? Maybe I should return them back to the pond as soon as they have developed.

Hi, Shari Ellen! Great picture of those frog eggs.

Your blog is quite a resource. I'm bookmarking it.

I would love to see more pics of the froggies as they grow! I posted a link to our day off school/ cleaning the house. Spring fever, you know.

Cool! My kids would love that! Thanks for keeping this meme going, quite a good way to start the week.

That is wonderful! I was thinking of searching for frog spawn this year - you have inspired me!

What a treat! I can't wait to see pictures of the development. I'll be sharing this with my kids (we have frogs in Alaska, but they're very tiny and hard to find).

Rebecca said...

My kids would be so excited to find such treasures!!

Oh, that's cool! I remember having tadpoles in an aquarium once when I was a kid and it was amazing to watch.

I've been tempted to order some but I don't really want them long term and they can live quite a while. At least you can let butterflies go but not frogs unless it's one native to your area.

I'll go check my parents' pond first but it's a bit large and I'd fear the snakes, which are common. Yikes.

Wow! You are a brave woman. I don't think I would've brought them home, but then again in the excitement, who knows...
