Activity summary

Do you know what skills frogs have? (catch flying insects)

Do you know what little frogs like to eat? (flies, mosquitoes, locusts, etc.)

Small frogs not only eat mosquitoes and flies, but also prey on a large number of agricultural pests such as moths and rice planthoppers. They eat about 50,000 pests a year. So people call it “the master of catching pests”. Frogs are of great benefit to us humans and are our good friends. How should we protect frogs? (Guide the children to speak, the teacher summarizes)
