    you could drag net the pond, catching everything in the water and then count the frogs

    poison the water and count the bodies

    or she could add the 1 to the 6 she was certain she saw before

    I also thought none as it is spoken in past tense "lived" instead of live. Yet there is too much extra info for the answer to be this simple.....

    I personally would tag them all with numbers or colours......
    Or throw in a bass and count the frogs when they flee the pond.

    I think for year 4 homework its just testing simple logic and problem solving.
    I think they are seeing what the kids come up with to solve the problem
    The most obvious answer would be to catch them all and then count them.

    I don't think it matters what answer each child comes up with as long they get the result they need which is to find a method to count the frogs.
    So you could say kill all the frogs, catch the frogs or dive in the pond with scuba diving gear etc
    You would get the same result either way.

    I have a mouth but I do not eat,
    I have a bed but I do not sleep,
    I can run but I have no legs,
    What am I?

    A river

    or
    As soon as it is spoken, it is broken.

    Not sure ??


    What is harder to catch the faster you run?

    Your shadow

    I agree - a river

    but I thought

    'silence'

    and

    'your breath'

    Re teh frog one - I keep asking teh kids - randomly - just to see if they come up with anything special

    DS2 just keeps saying - 'count them' and then pulling a screwy up nose look at me

    I'm probably going to dream about how to count these stupid frogs!

    DD1 & DD2 insist it's just "catch them and count them". Being the best way to find out how many there are.

    Blue Dragon- amandaw (first post on this page) had the answers to the riddles I posted.

    as u can tell its bugging me :-)
    LMAOOOO I have found the same site as you I think. I have been googling for the last half hour trying to find the answer, but no luck

    I just asked my DH and the first thing he said was count the different croaks.

    I too asked DD who's in grade 4 and was advised you'd keep scooping until you got no more and count how many you found then asked why I was asking and when I explained I was told to just google it 😏

    I have tried googling all day and found nothing, I think the teacher simply made this one up cause realistically there are too many variables, new frogs every day, frogs not being in the pond at time of count, frogs dying. Only thing I can think of is frogs don't live in ponds, they simply swim in them (I learnt that today with all my research 😊).

    at least one thing we can all know for certain is that the frogs go,

    *clap* La-di-da-di-da *clap* La-di-da-di-da *clap* La-di-da-di-da
