Amphibian Information and Education


Found In: math, science, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12

The Amphibian Ark’s Amphibian Information and Education is to make clear the plight of amphibians, the roles of amphibians in the ecosystem, and the steps we can take to save them from habitat destruction and over-collection. K-12 teachers will find resources on amphibians.

What Are Amphibians introduces the three orders of amphibians: frogs and toads, newts and salamanders, and caecilians, which resemble earthworms or snakes and live, for the most part, under ground.

Curriculum Materials links to units, lessons, guides, activities, and stories about amphibians. Ribbit! Ribbit! A Thematic Unit On Frogs, for example, is designed for K-2 English language learners to learn about frogs and pond habitats but can be adapted for grades 3-5 as well as all K-5 learners.

Species Fact Sheets is a growing collection of images and basic biological information on endangered amphibian species. These tend to be exotics, like the Horned Marsupial Frog from Central America and the Booroolong Frog (http://www.amphibianark.org/litoria-booroolongensis/) from Australia.

Amphibians as Pets provides guidelines for anyone considering keeping an amphibian.

Videos feature brief videos on the dangers to amphibians; chytrid, a fungus killing amphibians; and more.

Information for National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) Members is a source of amphibian PDFs.

Amazing Amphibian Species is a gallery of species that have been featured on the website. A new species is added twice a month.
