Nye In February Sample Activity

The Little Green Hill series follows Nye, a homeschooled boy who loves all things nature, as he explores the area around an old, abandoned farmhouse. Each month he meets and learns about a new animal – based off of our own personal experiences on our hill – and in February he discovers Trooper, a wood frog, who is named after the first tadpole we successfully raised and released.

All LGH books come with a code for a downloadable PDF full of projects, activities, and resources. In the download below, you can go on a scavenger hunt in search of items a wood frog might encounter as it navigates its environment.

See it one Amazon…



Who am I? Foremost, the lucky momma of an amazing boy. To be perfectly honest, I am less his teacher than he is my inspiration - I have learned at least as much from him in the last eight years as he has from me. I am an old-timer at heart; I'd rather live on a farm, garden, crochet, and raise my kid out in the sun than anything else. I'm a bit of a technological dinosaur, more geared toward life where you can get your hands dirty and have some fun exploring, learning, and growing. I'm a homeschooled, homeschooling single parent with a passion for my son, nature, and the simple life. I am not here to pretend I know it all or lay out the research or provide a step-by-step game plan. I hope to encourage and inspire families to join in the journey of learning together - and have the fun that life is supposed to be made of along the way. Happy exploring!
