Paper Bag Frog
Myths are made-up stories that tell how things came to be as they are.
Work with a partner to write and illustrate a myth that explains how a
frog or toad first developed one of its adaptations. (Example: "How the
frog got its sticky tongue", “How it only has 4 toes on its front feet
and five on the back”, “How it got its big bulgy eyes”, How it got its
big mouth”, “How it lost its outside ears”, “Why a toad has no teeth”,
“How a toad got its warts”, “Why frogs hop”, Why frogs croak”)
Making Frog Dough
cups unbleached flour, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons yeast, 1/4
cup sugar, 2 cups lukewarm milk,
Mix together all of the dry ingredients. Mix in the milk and enough water to make everything form a doughy ball. Turn the ball out onto a flat surface and knead for approximately 10 minutes. Return it into a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for approximately 90 minutes until the dough has doubled in size. Use raisins for eyes.
Baking Preheated the oven to 350. Right before throwing the frog in the oven I coated it with an egg wash. This was just a raw egg scrambled up and then brushed over the dough. Doing this gives the finished bread a beautiful, shiny coating. Baked it at 350 for 45 minutes.
