This is definitely the perfect time of year to study frogs, toads, and salamanders! I made some Montessori 3-Part Cards with some of the common amphibians of the northeast. This would be a perfect addition to the free Frog Lapbook over at Homeschool Share!
You can download these Montessori 3-part cards by clicking on the link below. These are currently free to download! I would love it if you could help spread the word! ~Liesl
There is also a lapbook piece for the Life Cycle of frogs (or a notebook page if you prefer something larger.
If you found these useful, I’d love to hear from you either here or over at our Homeschool Den Facebook Page! ~Liesl

Recently, we did a new Animal Unit. We went into more depth about the characteristics of the 5 animal groups (plus covered the classification of invertebrates, animal tracks, domesticated vs. wild animals and other things. See more below:
Animal Packet: Vertebrate-Invertebrate Packet, 30+ Page Packet: My daughter is now in Grade 2 and we are doing a new unit on the types of animals and on the Biosphere (more about that below). I made a new set of materials for her which we did in December 2015. It covers the 5 types of vertebrates and goes over the main characteristic of each vertebrate group: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish. It also covers many of the invertebrate groups starting with the differences between insects and spiders. Then going into more detail about some of the other invertebrate groups: crustaceans, mollusks, echinoderms, porifera, and others. Plus, it has a huge section on animal tracks (fun to do in the winter!) and has a bit about food webs, though we’ll really go into depth about that in our unit on the biosphere which we’ll do immediately following this unit.
The Animal Unit: Vertebrate-Invertebrate Packet is well over 30 pages. This is now available for purchase. It is $4.00.
You can find out more about it at this post (which shows in more detail what is included): Animal Unit: Types of Animals Worksheet Packet (30+ Pages) or you can purchase it below:
