    In our experiment we presented ten Northern Leopard Frogs with an assortment of food choices.  The question we wanted to answer is "What food will the frog eat first?"  We developed our hypotheses.  Then we gave our frogs the choice of a cricket, a mealworm, and an earthworm.  We recorded the results of what the frog ate first.  We repeated this experiment on other days.  We then got together and shared our conclusions for our frog experiment.  We also studied what frogs prefer to eat in the wild.
