From tadpoles to frogs
My neighbour Mrs. Hill gave me a bucket of tadpoles. The tadpoles were like 3 cm fat. I had been waiting a little while but they came. We set up a black tub with part of an old rabbit cage on top so the cats couldn’t get in. I went to the farm to get some duck weed from the drain. I put it in the tub with the tadpoles.
A couple of days later we found out that some tadpoles had turned into frogs, so we set up a different habitat for the frogs. We got some water from the farm trough and put some rocks in for them to sit on and some duckweed. The next day it was school. I walked into class and there was a habitat the same as ours, but with tadpoles. I took three fat tadpoles to live at school.
Once the school tadpoles turned in to frogs our class changed the habitat to a dry land with a pond. So I decided to change my habitat to the same. My frogs needed more land, less water. I brought a net to school and caught some moths, flies and white butterflies for the school frogs. I feed my frogs worms because my mum has a worm farm.
At home the cats would gather round the frogs habitat and scare them all away in the bark. My sister and I cleaned out the tadpole tub. Whenever a tadpole turns into a frog we put it in the frog habitat. We only have 2 tadpoles left in the tub. We have 6 frogs so far and we will soon have 8!!!!!!🐸
