World of Frogs

Discover the hidden “World of Frogs.”  This engaging interactive program was developed in collaboration with the Newburgh School district and meets core curriculum standards for 3rd grade.   Students learn about frog characteristics, adaptations, life cycle, habitat, and conservation while getting a close-up view of live frogs and tadpoles from our animal collection.  The presentation is followed by a hike to search for vernal pools, streams, and woodland habitats of native frogs. This presentation can be adapted for grades 2-4.
