Module 35

Frogs

Activity 1

To write lists with headings [lo 4.1.2]

Water is such an important element that all life would come to an end if there were no water on earth. If we did not have water to drink, our bodies would become dehydrated and we would die. All life forms on earth are dependent on water. That is why we must take great care in preserving our sources of water. We must never pollute the sea, rivers, streams or dams. Pollution is one of the greatest dangers to our life on earth.

2. Make a list of at least 20 creatures you can think of that live in water.

Activity 2

To express own opinion in writing [lo 4.1.5]

Frogs are cold-blooded creatures, just like reptiles. Reptiles are also very interesting animals. Some of them look rather creepy and some people don’t like them at all, but we must remember that every single creature on earth has the right to life. It is part of the greater life cycle of nature. That is why we should never kill an animal unless it is really necessary. Look at these interesting reptiles:

4. Divide into groups of about five learners. Each group must choose one topic related to life in and around water, and make a colourful, interesting poster for the classroom. Keep pollution in mind. You must write at least 10 sentences to go with the poster.
