We took a slight detour from the ten plagues of Exodus, to take a look at the life cycle of frogs, with Wendy Pfeffer's book, from the Let's-Read-And-Find-Out Science series, and a cut, and glue craft from DLTK.
Pfeffer's story is a Stage 1 book, so the explanations are simple, and not overly detailed (a fact I was grateful for when it came to the male frog fertilizing the eggs). And, it goes perfectly with the frog life cycle printout from DLTK.
The girls glued their cutout frogs, tadpoles, and eggs, with accompanying arrows, to constructions paper ponds, and lily pads.
Then, they drew on trees, and a few snakes, and birds (poor tadpoles).

It's great to be a homeschooler.
