Find Frog Facts and More at Updated Sites

The UW Sea Grant “Kids and Teachers” Web pages have been updated with new images and content, as well as smoother navigation. What didn’t change, though, are the field guides, quizzes and multiple hands-on activities that engage kids in learning more about Great Lakes critters and habitats. There is also a link to Wisconsin’s Water Library (aqua.wisc.edu/waterlibrary) and its resources for educators, parents and young people. Plus, another extensive section offers a history of underwater exploration, complete with a timeline; kid-geared experiments; and a link to lots of information about exploring Great Lakes shipwrecks.

“These pages make science accessible to young audiences and are some of our most consistently popular,” said Mary Lou Reeb, assistant director. “We wanted to ensure the experience of visiting the pages remains engaging. On our frog pages, for example, visitors can listen to the calls of Wisconsin frogs and get an update on the latest Sea Grant research being conducted on Wisconsin amphibians.”
