Frog Unit Study and Lapbook

Exploring Frogs Unit Study and Lapbook

After our bat lapbook and our owl lapbook, she requested a frog Lapbook! She has decided she really likes making Lapbooks now!

We got our printables & ideas from:

Here is a peek at her completed lapbook, for those of you new – she is in 1st grade.  She put together the front and back all on her own, taping her creations onto the folder. The amphibians on the back were a random image search and a copy/paste job so I don’t have the rights to share those. I just printed images I found for her to color – it was a totally last minute thing she asked for!

The elements in her Lapbook were not planned out well, so we had to get creative fitting them in.  Most were actually notebooking pages we used.  We got it all stuck in and she loves it, which is what counts!

We gathered all of our toy frogs and books and went to the library for even more frog books!

I made a mini pond out of green, blue and clear water beads and added our frogs to it.

We didn’t follow a strict plan, just read books, watched frog videos, and did some notebooking pages and a comparing frogs and toads mini book. I followed her lead with the activities I chose.  I did not print all of our resources ahead of time, I did it day by day based on what we read and what she was interested in.  Or animal unit studies are very casual.

Making frog puppets was a BIG favorite, we spent lots of time learning through that project.

Frog Puppet Craft and Frog Facts Printable

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links are used in this post}

We have been studying frogs lately – my daughter’s choice. We have learned a ton and will be sharing a full post of all we used and learned very soon.  During our frog unit study we made some frog puppets which were all her idea!

She has these frogs and asked me if we could make a craft to look like them.  I quickly thought of the old frog paper bag craft and showed her a bit about how it could be done and then let her go with her ideas.  First, she painted each bag to look similar to her favorite frogs.

After the bags dried, we worked together to give them arms, legs and a tongue.  I traced the arms and legs with her and we cut them out together  I showed her how to curl the tongue on one and she did the rest.

She loved these puppets so much I decided to expand on her interest and throw in more learning fun.  I looked up each of the frogs she had chosen and created a simple info card for her to tape to the back of each bag.

She was so excited to learn the real name of each frog and where it lives!

For even more learning fun, we got out our big Little Passports map and found where each frog lives.

Her finished frog collection, which will probably stay displayed like this for awhile, she still loves them!

Here’s the printable I made for her featuring her favorite 4 frogs.  I included a blank page in case you have different favorites that we didn’t include.

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter F

RLRS Letter F Matthew 4 Bible Verse Printables

 

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter E are available to download for free!  F is for FOLLOW! This set is based on Matthew 4:19, “Come, follow me, Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men” 

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it.

I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter L right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter F. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

She loves the coloring page. She likes to make it match.

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Ff

Since she dislikes this page for now, we used Wikki stix for the middle set of letters, and she happily wrote the last set of letters and colored the first!

RLRS Letter F -0316 RLRS Letter F -0317

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter F -0944

 

 

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram. Here is  our home banner!

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter F in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

Seeds Family Worship also has a wonderful version of this verse on their CD Seeds of Purpose, it’s #11 “Fishers of Men.” See it here on Amazon!

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.
