Brief Description

Students will use common objects to create four local frog calls.

Objective

  • Students will be able recognize the sounds of different types of frogs.
  • Students will be able replicate the sounds of these frogs using common household objects.
  • Students will learn how frogs create sound and how they use sound to communicate.

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?
