Frog Life Cycle Activities for Reading and Science

I'm so excited that it's finally Spring!!! Shortly after I teach my mini unit on Spring, I will begin teaching a unit on life cycles of plants and animals. I created a set of activities for Reading and Science for the life cycle of frogs. Be sure to check it out in my TpT store. It is only $2! I have also included some freebies for you below!

Here's a life cycle box book freebie I created to go with this unit! I tried it out on my daughter and she did well with direct instruction. I hope you get the idea of how it goes together from the directions. :)

I also created a Do You Like Frogs? graph and response sheet as a freebie to include in my unit above.

I also found the following activities to help me teach my frog life cycles mini unit. I hope you find the following links helpful, as well!

Life Cycle of a Frog Animated Science Video
Life Cycle of a Frog color page
Life Cycle of a Frog Online Puzzle (I'm going to use this at the end of the unit for a visual review.)

Frog Nomenclature Book (Montessori)
Understanding Webbed Feet
Frog Metamorphosis Diagram This diagram is a little bit better at showing a few more changes in the stages of the life cycle.

Do you have any great ideas for teaching life cycles? My favorites are actually the butterfly and the chick. :)


  1. I love it! I am going to buy it!!! We will do the frog life cycle next mont, now we are doing the life cycle of a chicken. What clip art did you use?
