#Summer Learning: Growing Tadpoles (Week 1)

In an attempt to keep my seven year old daughter learning during the summer break, we have decided to watch tadpoles grow into frogs!

We invite you to follow along with us as we learn about this amazing process known as metamorphosis.

According to the research we have done, these tadpoles are around 70 days old. It is hard to see from the pictures, but they do have little legs beginning to grow. They are being kept in the original pond water that they came from, along with some added bottled water. The set up that they are in has aquarium air tank. We were instructed, by a pet store employee, to feed them aquarium flake food, which the tadpoles have been really enjoying.
