Frog Anatomy

We’re starting off our frog anatomy education with these 3 part Nomenclature cards that are offered for FREE from Montessori Print Shop.  To see all of their free Montessori materials, go here.  These cards are a great introduction to the basic body parts of the frog.  It also develops skills to differentiate the various parts, match the correct cards and recognize words.  Best of all, JR really enjoyed this work.  You can see it in his face.

There’s even a line on the blank cards for the child to write the body part.  JR tried doing this, but found it pretty difficult.  With practice we’ll get there.

  

I’ll be the first to say that dissecting a frog wasn’t my favorite lesson in school, but frog anatomy this way is pretty cool.  Plus, I found this incredible 4D Vision Frog Anatomy Model that breaks apart like a puzzle.  You have to take a look at it because it really is cool.  We bought it for JR for Christmas…shhh.  If the 4D Model is a little advanced, JR had this puzzle at his Montessori Pre-School and loved it too.
