Unit 5 Week 4 Whistle for Wille

We are not able to use the internet this week at school due to bandwidth problems and "testing". That means the glog has dropped to the bottom of my "to do" list. I will be making this glog as I have time over the week. My illness has put me behind in all areas of my life!

Sorry that I didn't get to make this glog. I have been very sick over the past week. I will have to do it over the summer. :(

Frog and Toad Videos Unit 5 Week 2 Frog and Toad - The Kite

I wanted to study real frogs and toads with the story in unit 5 week 2 "The Kite".
These are about: 1)Poison Dart Frog-Takes a tadpole up a tree. 2)What Toads Eat 3)How Frogs Jump-This is pretty long and technical. I will probably only show a bit of this one. 4)Tadpoles-Very short video on how tadpoles grow and the difficulties they face.
