‘Frog Jumps’ in Junior Infants

We have been learning about frogs in Junior Infants. We investigated if we could jump the same length as a frog. We read that a frog can jump up to 20 times the length of its own body. We estimated that the length of a frog’s body was 2 inches. We measured a frog’s jump as 40 inches.
Our equipment:
• A metre stick
• Camera
• Book: ‘Tadpoles and Frogs’
• Ourselves
Our prediction:
We predicted that we would be able to jump the same length as a frog.
Our Method:
We placed our metre stick on the yard and we measured 40 Inches. We each had a turn to jump and measure the length of our jumps.
We took photographs as proof of our result.
Our result:
We could jump the same length as a frog based on our estimation!
