Favorite Sites

Frogs are one of my favorite critters. Many times I've wished I had those powerful legs and webbed feet for swimming and jumping. That long tongue might be a very useful thing too. Aside from that frogs are very interesting and beneficial ... just think of the insects they eat. Frogs come in many sizes and colors. Anywhere you can find a little water, frogs will be there to do their job.

All About Frogs for Kids and Teachers
Oodles of frog facts organized as questions and answers make All About Frogs an excellent first hop on our online frog tour. Beyond the Q's and A's you'll find fun frog crafts, songs and poems, original froggie clipart (free for non-commercial use), and links to lesson plans for K-8 teachers. Although the bulk of this site is for elementary students, middle and high-school students will find links to sites with more in-depth coverage under More Frog Facts and Information.

CGEE: A Thousand Friends of Frogs
In August 1995, students from the Minnesota New Country School found deformed frogs near the Minnesota River. A research scientist from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency wondered what else might be found if thousands of kids were looking in their backyards and so A Thousand Friends of Frogs was born. To study frogs in your hometown, click on Students/Get Involved. There is a data sheet you can use to collect your findings, and lots to learn about frogs as bio-indicators in the Science section.

Exploratorium: Frogs
My pick of the day comes from The Exploratorium museum of San Francisco. Visit to enjoy the well-written articles, illustrated with photos and video clips. The lead feature, The Amazing Adaptable Frog, is a must see, as is the click-and-hear (ribbit, ribbit) Frog Tracker exhibit. For something a little different, venture beyond biology with Tales and Tours, where you can become acquainted with Frog City, Louisiana or learn about Frog Myths Across Cultures.

Images of Native Americans
The Bancroft Library presents "Images of Native Americans," a digital companion to an exhibit of rare books, photographs, illustrations, and other archival and manuscript materials that debuted in the Fall of 2000, to celebrate the acquisition of the University of California, Berkeley Library's nine millionth volume.
