As an enrichment activity to Duncan's (10) science course this year, I purchased a Grow A Frog kit. Duncan has been ANXIOUSLY awaiting the arrival of his little tadpole. After waiting a few weeks, a little styrofoam container arrived today in the mail that was clearly his long-awaited tadpole!
Excitement abounded in our house and my teenage daughter even took a break from her schoolwork to help her little brother set up the habitat.
Perplexed, I called the Grow a Frog folks. After looking up my account, the representative quickly informed me that I received a frog instead of a tadpole because I ordered a frog. I meant to order a tadpole, I thought I ordered a tadpole, but I was mistaken. Tomorrow I'll be sending in the correct form to order Duncan's tadpole.
Since our tadpole habitat is too small for a full-grown frog, we retrieved a small aquarium that we had in the basement and quickly prepared a place for the frog to live so we could get him out of his travel bag.
