Brown Bear Series: The Green Frog

The Green Frog is simple and quick, both to prepare and to construct.  All you will need is a 4" x 6" green rectangle, a 1.5" x 6" red strip, and googly eyes.  Students will fold the rectangle in half to make the head, then curl the red strip of paper on their pencil for the tongue.  Glue the tongue inside the mouth and the googly eyes on the front.  That's it!  The highlight of this project is learning how to curl the paper around a pencil.  Although some may have trouble at first, once the see it can be done they are marveled by this technique.  They later use it creatively on their own when making up their own projects in the art center.
