How to play
·Listen to the recordings of 5 different frog species, learn what each forg/toad looks like from the photos, and learn the mnemonics (the pattern of letters, ideas, or associations that assists in remembering something), for each and practice singing each song/mnemonic.
Once the student has learn the 5 different frogs/toad calls, mnemonics, and can recgonize the photos either:
Each student closes their eyes and silently chooses which species of frog they would like to become for the frog chorus.
When students open their eyes everyone will sing their frog song at the same time and listen for others’ frog songs. Frogs singing the same song will group together.
Repeat with and choose a different call
One person holds up a frog/toad picture and everyone else needs to sing the call of that frog/toad
OR one person sings the call (or plays the call) and then everyone else has to hold up and guess which frog it is. If song is played, then the students have to sing the mnemonic and hold us the frog/toad picture.
FIVE frog/toad species:
Mnemonic: Peep, Peep, Peep
Mnemonic: Quack, Quack, Quack
Mnemonic: A long Trill (rolling you tongue)
Mnemonic: Bow Bow Bow (Like a loose banjo string)
Mnemonic: Jerom, jerom, jerom (very low)
