Monday Memories - Frogs & Frog Bread!

This week's Monday Memory comes from our co-op with Mrs. S and her two girls, too. We spent a day studying amphibians. We discussed amphibians, the lifecycle of a frog, and the difference between a frog and a toad. My favorite website was All About Frogs and my favorite books were Amphibians Bev Harvey and Frogs by Gail Gibbons.

From the All About Frogs site, we made some froggy bread! It was a lot of fun and turned out a little chewy, but good! And, we got to work in some math (if we need 6 cups of flour and there are 3 of you girls, how many cups should each girl add?). And, since we're studying microbes in our human body study, we talked about yeast and how it makes bread rise.

Here's Alex (over 3 years ago) measuring some flour.
 And here she is making her frog bread. We really had a lot of fun with this study!

We had so much fun that Alex and I made turtle bread, too!
She even added green dye to her butter!

OMGoodness! That has got to be the cutest bread I have ever seen. I wish that I would have known about this when Lindsay was studying frogs.

What great timing on your post! Our tadpoles just sprouted their front legs, and are almost free of their tails! We like that same frog book you mentioned. If I can muster up some energy, I'd love to try that frog bread, and thank you for the website reference!

I love your idea of Monday Memories! Very cute. It's a great way to look back on your blog at some of the stuff we may have missed.
I'm in the mood for some fresh baked bread. So those amphibians look quite tasty!
