Final Pond Day

Our tadpoles have grown legs but school is closed early because of a
teacher's strike so we made a quick trip to the pond to let them go.         
We also had to release a few other creatures that came in with the fresh
                                         water each week.
  We had several different larvae, a fish, teeny bugs and a tiny snail.
Lots of questions came out as we spent time watching the tadpoles.  What do they eat?  Do tree frogs grow in trees?  Do toads grow the same as frogs? 
                     Great questions to hold on to for next year.

But for today we carefully carried them down to the water and said goodbye.
