Abstract: A partnership between a university and a science and technology magnet school brings a renowned her-petologist, Dr. Meg Stewart, to involve third-graders in her studies of coqui frogs. These students prepared to meet this scientist with a series of lesson plans (eight activities and four lab lessons) to learn the anatomy, behavior, and diversity of frogs; and how they differ from reptiles. Included is a list of resources containing an annotated bibliography of trade books that can be found in most elementary school media centers. Other aspects of the collaboration between the university and the school are described.
