Toad Abode: Creating a Home for a Backyard Toad

In this activity about backyard habitats learners create a safe and toad-friendly environment near their own home. Since frogs and toads are too sensitive to touch, observing them in this make-shift home is a great idea for families. Have fun and be creative by using rocks and twigs to surround the abode; every toad needs a good home!
