After drawing and coloring this frog, we brought up this Wonderopolis page called Can Frogs Freeze?
We read it through and discussed vocabulary and then the kids wrote the facts that interested them the most. This was a great lesson which was accomplished start to finish in a 45 minute period. The kids were so proud of their work and are beginning to understand how to start looking at non-fiction so that they will be able to create it as move forward in the quarter.
