Check out our photos from our Hop-Into-Action Amphibian Workshop. This was held last Friday June 21 at Spring Creek Prairie in Denton, NE. At this workshop we had 18 people who were all interested in learning about amphibians. We started off by learning basic amphibian biology, coservation and how to tell the difference between our Nebraska Amphibians. We even got to see live Amphibians of Nebraska which included A Plains Spadefoot, a Barred Tiger Salamander, Woodhouse’s Toad, Cope’s Gray Treefrog, and many more. Participants also were engaged into a few Hop-Into- Action activites that were geared for K-4 ages. We ended the day by going out and searching for amphibians of our own.
Hop-Into-Action teaches science through a process and not by memorization. If you give the tools to the educators, they are more likely and willing to teach it to their students and kiddos. The lessons in Hop-Into- Action are designed to exercise children’s natural curiosity about the environment using observation, photos, games and hands on learning.
