These frog science activities help kids learn about the life cycle of a frog. They’re a great addition to science centers in Pre-K up to First Grade.
It’s a really fascinating process to watch the tadpoles turn into frogs. I hope these hands-on resources will help your kiddos learn all about the frog life cycle!
Science Center Resources
I love creating bulletin boards with real photos! The following bulletin board is an engaging way to introduce kids to the life cycle of a frog. I’ve included real photos along with signs, labels and banners. So you can set up your science center like a pro. 😉
Frog Science Center
I found this artificial ivy trellis from Kmart (Australia), which makes a really awesome backdrop for science centers. Below is an example of how you can set up a display to teach kids about tadpoles and frogs. I created a banner and then put some labels in order below. Then I used a binder to create a class book which details each stage of the life cycle. It’s useful to read to students when you’re introducing the topic.
Science Observation Activities
I made a variety of observation activities that kids can use to record their observations of tadpoles or frogs. The kids can either draw or write their observations.
Life Cycle Activities
There are a variety of different frog life cycle activities, so they can be adapted to multiple year levels. The life cycle wheel is fun for younger students and older students will have fun with the interactive notebook activity. Kids can either paste the description below the flap or write it – I’ve included both variations.
Frog Life Cycle
Below are a few of the frog life cycle resources. There’s the class book, a life cycle wheel and an example of the interactive notebook activity up close.
Kids can label a tadpole or a frog. There is a reference poster included to help with the worksheet activity. I made it so it is not too complex, but still interesting for young learners.
