    Worksheet
    This is a great twist on an interesting fact that wood frogs can freeze in the winter and thaw in the spring to resume living. Students evaluate two claims and evidence statements and then write their own. Students then share out and evaluate each others as a class. This worksheet helps students to build their claim evidence and reasoning skills.
