    Love all your stuff! I got my 3 year old a "grow your own frog kit" for Christmas. It comes with a little aquarium and a certificate to mail order a tadpole. We just sent for our frog and don't have it yet, but my little guy is super excited! You can find them on amazon.com if you are interested. Thanks so much for sharing all your great ideas! :o)

    Photographing ahead of time has been the way to go for me as well. I don't like to interrupt James during schooltime for a photo.I smiled when I saw your sensory bin because it's almost exactly what I had in mind for one of our upcoming tubs. Great minds!

    What a bunch of fun creative ideas. And so smart to photograph ahead. Being a blogger, I know how the camera can become tiresome to the kids and can cause me not to be in the moment because I am so busy photographing the moment. Thanks for sharing!

    Long ago, I started a Frog and Toad Unit folder where I put ideas. I'm going to print this off and use your ideas, too. I like putting the frogs on the log idea. I need to get busy on our unit.

    Looks like a very well designed unit.As we were identifying bird parts, I was thinking about Montessori print shop's nomenclature parts, and how that would be so helpful right then.

    What a wonderful unit, Julie! I love your combination of more academic topics with fun, practical life activities like transferring frogs with chopsticks. I've added your post link and photo to http://livingmontessorinow.com/2011/07/14/montess
