How Students Can Use The SAVE THE FROGS! Website

There is no time like spring in the Midwest United States. It’s a time of transition. The first sign of spring is the carpeting of wildflowers on the forest floor and the chorus of spring peeper frogs. My favorite childhood hobby was exploring the marshy environments of Southern Indiana and getting to witness the metamorphosis of frogs. I watched the mass of jelly eggs change into squirmy tadpoles before becoming four-legged jumping amphibians. Frogs gave me my first tangible experience of studying biology and got me hooked. I’ve prepared this article to give students ideas on how they can use the SAVE THE FROGS! website to incorporate amphibian conservation into their assignments and improve the quality of their completed projects.
