Life Cycle of a Frog Coloring Page
Children can enjoy coloring the pond, lily pads, frogspawn, tadpoles, froglets, and adult frogs.
This hoppy life cycle of a frog features, coloring, cutting practice, gluing and folding.
I recommend coloring the images in first, but if you are working with much younger children then you might want to cut them in advance.
Sort the images into the correct order and glue them under the frog.
Next, create a life cycle of a frog spinner wheel. But before you do ask the children to complete the frog facts questions at the top of the page.
- Frog eggs are laid in the pond.
- Tadpoles use gills to breathe in the water.
- Tadpoles at 6 weeks old form hind legs.
- A young frog is called a Froglet. At 2-4 months have formed front legs and now breathe air using the lungs.
- Once the long tail is reabsorbed by the body the froglet becomes a frog.
Place the pages on top of each other and cut out the 2 circles. Make sure on the frog life cycle image you cut out the blank quarter.
Place the frog life cycle image with the quarter cut out on top of the other image and add a brass fastener to the middle.
The final life cycle of a frog worksheet is where the children draw the correct image into each of the circles.
When you have completed these worksheets why not have some fun with these 5 speckled frogs printable puppets?
