Students Saved The Frogs at Bay Elementary School in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida!
"Our school has an area that floods due to heavy rains. There was a drain but it is no longer functional. The area that is currently flooded is 200 feet by 30 feet and 2 feet deep. There are massive schools of tadpoles within this temporary pond. In places, two feet deep by 10' x 2' with thousands and thousands of tadpoles. The water is receding at a rate that will have the area dried up by next week. I sent out a school wide email to "Save the Frogs" at our school. Students netted the tadpoles and put them in 5-gallon pails to move to a nearby pond. It has turned out to be a great teaching moment to introduce vocabulary to the students like; -schools, spawning, life cycle, water cycle, stages of metamorphosis and habitat'." - Bay Elementary School Teacher and Save The Frogs Day Event Orangizer

What a great way to Save The Frogs!
