This fall I ordered some tadpoles for my classroom so that my first grade students could witness the life cycle of a frog. Unfortunately, my tadpoles have not changed at all. They have been in my class for months and months and haven't even sprouted little arms yet. My students are beginning to think that tadpoles really aren't baby frogs, and looking at our science journals this is becoming a valid conculsion. Recently I was told that my tank is too small and they do not have enough room to change into frogs. I would love to get a nice big aquarium so that my students can have the opportunity to watch a tadpole grow and change. However, I am a first year teacher in a very poor school and the funds are simply not there. My school is in a very poor neighborhood, and every child in my class qualifies for free lunch. I would truly appreciate a new tank for our classroom, and I know that my students (and the poor tadpoles) would too.
