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

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?

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.

Background Knowledge

Learning about life cycles is really the first step toward more complex science concepts, like the scientific process.

Understand Cycles

Many things in our world are cyclical: life, seasons, and weather are a few examples. Understanding basic life cycles gives kids knowledge of general cycles.

Connect with Nature

The more children know and understand about the natural world, the more they will connect and understand to natural surroundings.

Make Connections

Learning different life cycles, from plants to animals and insects, helps kids make deeper connections among them and relate it to themselves.

How To Use Make the STEM Frog Lifecycle

How to Make The Lifecycle Diagrams

Step One:

Print the kindergarten science worksheets and pictures on paper or cardstock. There is an option to choose from either black/white or color.

Step Two:

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.

– Life Over C's Cut and paste four stages of the frog life cycle in order.

Extend the Activity:

Frog activities

Our frog lifecycle playdough mats are a colorful way to display the final result of the life cycle. What a great way to get little fingers working!

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.

Picture Matching

Give your child real-life life cycle pictures of frogs and see if they can match them to the diagrams.

Sensory Bin

Talk about the life cycle stages of a frog and work on fine motor skills as you play in a frog-themed sensory bin.

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.

Play a Game

Continue learning about frog life cycles with a fun board game designed to engage and teach the stages of a frogs life.
