One little frog goes hop
Along came another and they just can't stop
Two little frogs goes hop hop
Along came another and they just can't stop
(continued until all the children were frogs hopping)
Aaron: First comes the egg then the tadpole and then the big frog.
Levi: I've seen a frog jump around in my back yard.
Morah Katie: How is it that a tadpole can breathe under water?
Ben: It has gills like a fish.
Morah Katie: Then how can it breathe on land as a frog?
Dena: It grows lungs and legs.
Morah Katie: So can any animal breathe both in the water and in air? 
Levi: No only frogs.
Ben: It has to be an amphibian.
Noah: Frogs can be any color. Mine is a rainbow frog but first it was an egg and then tadpole and a frog ribbit ribbit.

Morah Katie: Would you find a salamander in a hot dry desert?
Ben: NO!
Tori: You would definitely probably find a salamander at a creek if you were lucky enough to go to a creek.
Levi: Yeah they need water.
Morah Katie: Why?
Tori: Because they have slimy skin and need to stay wet. 

I saw a little creature that was slimy, smooth and wet.
I thought it was the oddest thing that I had ever met.
It was something like a lizard but it had no scales at all.
It was something like a frog but it didn't hop, it crawled. 
so i took it to my teacher and she told me right away, 
" I see you brought  a salamander into class today."

In other areas of the classroom

the animals from our classroom arc were treated to a story;
the children practiced some yoga, 
flew space shuttles,
discovered a trick to multiplying,
 and enjoyed the simple joys of thoughtful work.
