This Is How You Play
- The Cricket Frog sound is made by clicking two marbles together.
- The Bull Frog sound is created by rubbing a wet finger on the outside of an inflated balloon.
- The Leopard Frog sound is created by scraping the teeth of a plastic comb against a surface.
- The Green Frog sound is created by first wrapping a rubber band around a plastic container and plucking band on the open side of the container.
General Variation: Encourage students to create their own frog calls to share with the group. What are they trying to communicate with their call?
