Where do toads live? What do they like to eat?
We expected they would live "on the water" (Cate) or "under ground" (Lucas) but they actually don't like to be in the water and prefer to hide under rocks and wood piles.
Wilder: Maybe they like to be under rocks hiding from people. They hide under this rock (picking up a small tile from the table). Maybe they hide under other frogs. Yeah, that's funny.
The conversation about different kind of hiding spaces for toads inspired Cate, Wilder, Michael and Lucas to create their own houses for toads.
Ohh, that smell - Michael (smelling flower petals)
How can we get the materials to stick onto the collage?
Cape: With collage (holding up the glue bottle)
Michael: Can I have the glue?
Michael: I get the rock (using small pebbles). It's covered in glue.
Frannie: I want to use these (shiny copper paper)
I put lots of things. Feathers! (finding beechnut covers)
