When you talk about pond life, do you think about the Newt?
This lizard like amphibian is not only fun to learn about but fun to watch. They wiggle through the water by swishing their little legs and tail.
My children love going to the creek to see if we can collect them to view. Don’t worry, we don’t keep them. We only do catch and release.
It is a great way to incorporate some science into everyday life! If you are near a pond this is a great activity for you to try as well!
There is far more to these cute critters than just watching them work their way through the water!
Do you know that newts are not reptiles but are actually amphibians?
