Days with Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel is a collection of stories about Frog and Toad. Among the stories are life lessons about being proactive, not giving up after failure, and the true meaning of friendship. One of the stories is called "The Kite" and Frog and Toad are trying to make a kite fly. After several failed attempts and ridicule from some robins, Frog gets discouraged and wants to give up. Toad, however, insists on trying one more time and they succeed in flying it. After reading "The Kite," a teacher could have the students actually attempt to fly a kite and have a discussion on things that might help a kite fly turning the activity into a science lesson. All of the stories in Days with Frog and Toad collection could be used in the classroom, and the activity about using "The Kite" was one example of how one of the stories could be used.
