Reinhard first-graders are more acquainted with the differences between frogs and toads following a hands-on demonstration of their characteristics by Frog Man. Science consultant Brian Wallrapp introduced the students to Bob the bullfrog and Tammy the tree frog among others as he explained the differences in the shapes of their bodies, skin texture, position of their eyes on the head and vocalizations.

The lesson precedes the first-grade science unit on the life cycle of frogs and toads in which students will observe the growth of tadpoles in their classrooms.
