We have tadpoles in the puddles out in the woods.  We took a walk yesterday and collected several of them so we can watch the transformation.  Some of them already have legs and a couple of them are almost ready to leave the water.

 If you look carefully you can see some of them swimming in the murky water.  The water was just teeming with them, but whenever I tried to get close enough for a picture, they would all swim away.
 Nathanael filled the jar with water for Tabbi and she caught them in a fish net.

 The Black Monster (aka Licorice) follows us whenever we go for a walk.
 A puddle filled with green, but no tadpoles in this one.

 And of course Kermit always comes along.  He likes to cool off in the creek.

 Tabbi found several small snails in the creek and brought back of few of them, too.

I found a couple of frog life cycle worksheets that Tabbi wanted to do.  She ended up combining them into one sheet.

I will be posting this blog entry on the "Handbook of Nature Study" blog carnival.  Check it out.  She has some awesome ideas!
