Tadpole Tank

A friend of mine offered us some tadpoles from her pond, so we took a field trip to her garden where the boys enjoyed equipping a tank & catching the tadpoles to take home. Quite a number died in the first few days, but we have around 6 left which are now growing legs and looking more frog-like each day. I have left the boys' nature notebooks, pencils and a magnifying glass next to the tank so they can observe and draw the developing taddies. My youngest son produced a nice drawing of the life cycle of the frog, too.
