Life cycles are so fun to explore with young, curious learners! This multi-sensory stages of a frog life cycle for kids craft really brings the process to life and helps kids remember it.
I love that these frog life cycle diagrams require simple materials that you probably already havingt lying around. And I love that you can adapt the life cycle of a frog for kids craft into ANY life cycle you might be studying! Imagine all the comparing and contrasting possibilities.
I used to LOVE collecting frogs out of my parent’s window well when I was growing up. I even tried to sneak one into my room, inside of my pocket, before my parents caught me. Side note: Frogs do not like Gushers fruit snacks! It’s so interesting to learn that frogs were once teeny tiny tadpoles.

Learning the Frog Life Cycle Stages in Preschool

REGARDLESS OF THE ANIMAL, PlANT, OR INSECT, LIFE CYCLES ARE A GREAT WAY TO INTRODUCE YOUNG LEARNERS TO NEW VOCABULARY AND CYCLICAL PROCESSES. THIS IS REAL SCIENCE FOR KIDS!
Biology for kids help children connect with nature, and they help them understand the world around them.
This life cycle of a frog diagram is a great hands-on way to explore how a frog comes into the world. Since kids are already familiar with frogs and typically have background knowledge, learning specific information about how a young tadpole becomes an adult frog is fascinating and real to students.
The life cycle of a frog worksheet includes eggs, tadpole, tadpole with legs froglet, and frog.
I like to use the frog life cycle printable at the end of the unit to review what we learned, to practice the vocabulary, and to have a final finished product to refer to as we study other plants, animals, and insects.
In addition to learning about frog eggs and tadpoles, you can pose additional questions to young learners. Depending on the species of frog you study, there could be additional questions for thought:
- How do frogs change as they develop?
- What does the frog need to grow and survive?
- What is it called when an animal/insect changes throughout its development?
- What food helps the froglet grow?
What Can Preschoolers Learn While Making a Frog Lifecycle Diagram?

LEARNING ABOUT LIFE CYCLES IN KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE IS A GREAT TIME TO INTRODUCE SCIENTIFIC VOCABULARY THAT SOMETIMES TRANSFERS TO OTHER TOPICS.
Why Is It Important For Kids To Learn About Life Cycles?
Children are naturally curious about everything around them. Learning about the life cycles of living things help them understand the world a little bit better.
How To Use Make the STEM Frog Lifecycle
How To Make The Lifecycle Diagrams
Create each stage of the life cycle with the children. Cut out the pieces and have the children place them in the correct order. It’s best to have them place it on the spot before they glue it on so you can check for understanding.
Create a Book
Make a life cycle book with half sheets of paper and child illustrations/labels of each step in the life cycle of a frog.
Give your child real-life life cycle pictures for frogs and see if they can match them to the diagrams.
Have a Snack
A frog themed snack is a great way to please hungry kiddos while still reviewing important concepts and vocabulary! Grapes or raisins can be used as frog eggs, while gummy worms and gummy frogs can be used for additional stages.
