    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 will evaluate claims and evidence on if a frozen frog is alive. This worksheet helps students to build their claim evidence and reasoning skills.

    Activity
    A fun predator prey activity that focuses on removal of a limiting factor and how that affects the resilience of the prey population and its environment. Students participate in an activity that models a population of rabbits. Students learn how density-dependent factors affect a population size.
