4 Habitat Adapted from original by: Kathe Goria Hendrickson & John Hendrickson Tune: Lolli-Pop, Lolli-Pop Well the underground is a habitat, a very special habitat. It s where the dirt is soft and wet. It keeps me moist and safe from danger. The underground s a habitat we depend on! Well the water is a habitat, a very special habitat. It s where our jellied eggs are laid. It keeps us safe while we are growing. The water is a habitat we depend on! Well the forest floor is a habitat, a very special habitat. It s where we hide among the fallen leaves. It gives us plenty of food to eat. The forest floor is a habitat we depend on! Well, the trees are a habitat, a very special habitat. It s where we blend in so we can t be seen. It keeps us hidden among the leaves. The trees are a habitat we depend on!

5 Frog and Toad Sounds Frogs are talking to all around. Listen, listen to these sounds. Wood frog says, cluck, cluck! Pickerel frog says, croak, croak! Barking frog says, bark, bark! Green frog says, plunk, plunk! Leopard frog says, kerrrrock, kerrrrock! Bullfrog says, jug-o-rum, jug-o-rum! Gray tree frog says, trillll, trillll! Chorus frog says, chirp, chirp! Pig frog says, grunt, grunt! Spring peeper says, peep, peep! Did you hear what they all say? What do you say today?

6 I m a Little Frog Egg I m a little frog egg, Watch me hatch, please don t beg. I will be a tadpole soon, Think I ll wiggle out by noon. I m an egg. I m an egg. I m an e-g-g, egg! I swim and swim so much each day, Soon I ll be a frog, they say. Then in the pond I ll surely soak, You can hear me croak, and croak. I was an egg. I was an egg. I was an e-g-g, egg! Something s happening to me inside, My shape is changing; my tail is not so wide. Two front legs and two behind, it s true, Better watch out, I ll jump on you! Now I m a frog. Now I m a frog. Now I m a f-r-o-g, frog!

7 Baby Toads Tune: 5 Little Ducks 5 baby toads went out to roam.
