EC and KG learn about frogs and chameleons

29/11/2010

These past two weeks the EC and KG classes have read two wonderful books by Joy Cowley and Nic Bishop: The Red-Eyed Tree Frog and Chameleon, Chameleon.  These beautiful books are so interesting!  We colored a picture of a red-eyed tree frog. We also watched a very entertaining video showing one red-eyed tree frog trying to climb over another.  We had to watch it over and over because we thought it was so funny!  

You can watch the video clip on Google Video by clicking on the picture below:

After we read about chameleons we watched an interesting video about baby chameleons from National Geographic.  Contrary to popular belief, chameleons don’t change color as camouflage, but in response to temperature, light and mood! We had fun coloring a picture of what we thought would be a happy chameleon!
