The third grade students in some of the elementary schools in Trumbull were taught a lesson about the possible plight of frogs which may become part of the endangered species list. Studying ecosystems and the food chain of animals is part of the science curriculum.

The lessons were centered around a book called, The Frightened Frog, an Environmental Tale, written by Brenda Moore and Jean Ohlmann who are members of the National Garden Clubs, Inc.

The book discusses why frogs are important, how they have come to the point of becoming endangered, and what we can do to help prevent this from happening.  As part of their lesson, the children made posters to show what we can do to help our friend the frog.

Each elementary school media center will receive a copy of this book from the Long Hill Garden Club to add to its collection.
