Frog Dissection

Third grade biologists observed Jabba, our largest tree frog, up close and watched him eat some crickets. We learned the characteristics of amphibians, how to distinguish between frogs and toads and then in conjunction with our vertebrate unit, third grade scientists used an app to dissect a frog. Vocabulary included scalpel, forceps, and incision. There are also other interactive activities and videos on this app.
