Life Cycle of the Frog

Frogs are amphibians.  That means they live part of their life cycle in water and part on land.  They're also super cute. Use the story with simple words and beautiful pictures just to bring to mind what you already know about the frog lifecycle.  As you interact with the story together, pay attention to how it makes you feel.  What do you notice and might want to talk about?  What other, related things come to mind?  High school bio, for example? Or just life in general. How does it all work?  How did it come to be?  It might make you think about science.  Or you can just wonder at it all.

Baby Chickens (video)

The story is very basic.  It reminds us that chickens are birds.  There are billions of chickens today, more than any other bird.  And a vast majority of them live on industrial farms and provide us with meat and eggs. 

However, another part of the story reminds us that they were once wild and that, like all birds, reproduce using eggs.  The last part of the story includes a video of an egg hatching.
