Today, as part of our continued study of living things, we put 12 tadpoles in our aquarium. We used a net to move the tadpoles from a bucket into the tank, and each student moved one tadpole. After that, the students fed them. The tank has been placed in a way to allow students to observe the tank from inside or outside the classroom, and students were fascinated by the small amphibians.
After the tadpoles change into frogs, we will release them back out into the wild.
Next week, we will be going to Lake Ezu to try to catch more fish and shrimp to put in the aquarium.
