This short video segment from IdahoPTV's D4K explains how biologists use frogs to study problems in the environment.
Joan Cartan-Hansen: Amphibians have become important in helping scientists take care of the world around us.
Biologists study them to study about problems in the environment.
When amphibian numbers drop, scientists look for the cause and how to fix the problem. This helps all living things including us.
Spring is the time to listen and look for frogs.
So what are you waiting for? Hop over to the nearest pond to meet some of your amphibian neighbors.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
