Make an ecotarium at home! Science project!

Looking for an easy and fun science project do at home (for weeks!)? With April showers many puddles, ponds, and streams are full of creatures being born, especially tadpoles. Find a muddy place (steam, puddle, pond). Look for eggs or tadpoles (see pictures). Scoop up the eggs or just tadpoles if hatched put them in a bucket with leaves, water, rocks, other. (Even if the eggs are empty get some too because tadpoles eat them). Alas! You created your own ecotarium! I love science! Then watch, document, and wait! There is no better way to learn than observation and discovery! Throughout the day my children check them constantly! Water bugs will appear, algae, and more! The tadpoles change right before your eyes. And because the eggs are transparent you can see every stage. And when they finally grow into frogs it's fun to then let them go where you found them! Share your pictures and post your ecotarium! (Make sure not to put them in direct sunlight so the water doesn't get too hot).
