All About Herps
Think you already know about sea snakes, frogs, toads, salamanders, and sea turtles for kids? Have you heard of a toad whose eggs embed in the females’ back, even after hatching, until they emerge as tadpoles? Did you know the sea turtles only come out of the water to lay their eggs on the same beach they themselves were hatched? Did you know the green sea turtle doesn’t have a green shell, but rather green fat? Wondering if the extremely venomous water snakes are in the ocean near you?
This 44 page printable science lesson for K-8th grade will take you on a fascinating journey as you learn about sea turtles, sea snakes, aquatic frogs, marine toads, and salamander.
All the pages except for the flashcards are in black and white to save you on printing costs. You can read the material on your laptop, desktop or phone if you want to save even more printing and paper costs. We like to print the pages and the kids color the cute blackline pictures as we learn about these unique and amazing animals that live in the water.
Included on the pages are instructions for a simple science experiment that will help kids understand life for sea turtles, frogs, and other herps. Doing hands on activities make things so much more memorable so they retain the information better.
