Project: Frogs

Today we have started not only a new month but a new project too. We started off by Ms Nerissa introducing the project and

discussing the life-cycle of a frog and their habitat. She also explained that there are lots of frog activities and games to

participate in throughout this project. Summer started off by sequencing the lifecycle of a frog while Freya was making play-

dough frogs and Anabelle was painting her most colourful frog. Educators have also introduced the ‘Family Tote Bag.’ This is a

bag that each child takes home and fills with items that they think is relevant to the project. Once the child has chosen a few

items to fill the bag then they bring it back to the centre where they share their items of interest/relevance to the project.

Summer will take the bag home first because she has a keen interest in frogs and has lots of frog related items that she can

share and contribute to the project.
