Nature Study: Frog File Folder Book

We’ve recently had a tree frog regularly visiting our living room window each night and eating bugs, which has been so fun to watch. And, it inspired us to do a nature study on frogs. Then, a friend of mine who just started her own blog, had some terrific ideas for a preschool unit study on frogs. From the links in her post, we got started this week with a frog file folder book.

Many of our frog projects, including the templates for this book, came from this link. To make the frog file folder book, paste the frog face to a file folder and cut the folder along the face outline. The eyes are glued to the back of the book, and the pages stapled to the inside.

What was most fun about this introductory activity, is that the story inside the frog file folder book was on my son’s reading level! He had so much fun reading the book he had made. There were only two sight words that he hadn’t learned, and he easily tackled them. Overall, it was a blast to make these, and the perfect way to open our long-delayed frog study.
