Learning about the life cycle of a frog is pretty fascinating. In this post, you will see how this little frog goes from being an egg to a tadpole; then eventually finds itself hopping around like the frog that most of us know it is. Whether your kids live in an area that allows them to experience the frog life cycle hands-on or not, this printable will help guide you forward in educating your child on the process of how a frog comes to be.
The Stages of the Frog Life Cycle
As a means to inspire you to move forward with teaching your kids about the life cycle of a frog, I’ve created a short synopsis to go along with the life cycle of a frog printable worksheet.
That little frog starts its life off as a fertilized egg. A female frog lays a cluster of eggs in a pond, they float there looking like a pile of jelly until it’s time to hatch.
The next step for the life cycle of a frog is to turn into a tadpole. The eggs hatch and out comes teeny little tadpole.
The next stage in the cycle is the young frog. This is where the tadpole starts to grow front legs and looks like a fish combined with a frog.
The last stage in the life cycle of a frog is to become an adult frog. The young frog will shed its tail and anything else that makes it look like a tadpole and become a full-grown adult frog.
Now that you know the basics of the life cycle of the frog, we want to share a worksheet that will guide you forward on your mission to educate your kids. This worksheet is a free printable and you can click below to download it.
