Show 1202 Animals – Vertebrates- Amphibians
Amphibians are our next category of animals with a backbone. They hatch from jelly covered eggs and start out their lives under water breathing with gills. The babies look very different from adult amphibians. One example is tadpoles and adult frogs. They usually live on or near water and adults can breathe through lungs or gills. They are cold blooded which means their body temperature depends on the temperature of their environment. They have smooth skin and no scales. Some examples are frogs, toads and salamanders. Our first project is a hinged salamander made from foam board with Heather Lancaster. Then, its time for a fun, “dancing” frog made from Styrofoam. Then it’s another type of salamander from clay and this one is perched on your pencil! Last, it’s a crazy quilt card featuring your favorite amphibian.
