SAVE THE FROGS! Poetry Contest Winner Caitlin Lambert is spreading the word about frog extinctions
Caitlin Lambert was 14 when she won our 2012 SAVE THE FROGS! Poetry Contest. Now she's helping us judge entries and she's giving presentations about frog conservation in North Carolina schools! Caitlin writes in: "I gave two presentations last Thursday to the second grade classes at Wesley Chapel Elementary School. Both presentations went wonderful, and the students were all VERY excited about frogs! I handed out some "frogs found in America" coloring sheets, which they colored at home and returned with at least two facts they discovered about their particular frog. Most of the students exceeded the limit and wrote five, ten, or sometimes four pages about their frog."
Frog Poetry from Wesley Chapel 2nd grader Kaley:
Red Eyed Tree Frogs
Have you ever seen
The red eyed tree frogs so green
With red eyes and red toes too
They are depending on you
To save them from harm
So be alarmed
To help red eyed tree frogs all the time
To save them from crime
Oh please oh please
Don't cut down the trees
Come save the frogs with me.
Feel free to print the PDF of this flyer and post it around your town! Just left-click to get the PDF.
