HeadStarting Frog: Conservation Science in the 6th grade classroom
This grant funds a a three-part, interactive exploration of native frog ecology and conservation as part of the 6th grade science curriculum. Students will also participate in “headstarting” native tadpoles in the classroom, helping local frog populations as they learn about vernal pools and their vital role in New England ecosystems. The program gives students an opportunity to learn core conservation principles, study native examples of threatened species, and gain experience with scientific practices while participating in a real-life, place-based conservation science project.
