Science

Raise a Tadpole: Find tadpoles (they are usually around after a hard rain). Put them in a dishpan or aquarium. Fill with soil and plants. Cut a plastic gallon milk jug in half (you're going to make a pond). Dig a hole in the dirt and put in the bottom half of the jug. Fill the jug about half-full of water; add a rock or two that extend above the water surface. Make sure the soil is level with the plastic container. Feed the tadpole regular fish food. When the tadpoles become frogs, feed them mealworms.
