Frog Life Cycle Printable
Before you start using these frog life cycle worksheets, teach your preschooler some fun facts about frogs.
You can use one or more of the books I’ve shared below, or you can just share these interesting tidbits:
• Frogs lay their eggs in water.
• A group of frogs is called an army.
• Frogs absorb water through their skin so they don’t need to drink.
PREPARING THE ACTIVITIES
To use these worksheets with your preschoolers, all you’ve got to do is print them out. They are ready for use immediately. No prep work required!
However, you can make the activities reusable by laminating them and using velcro dots on the cut/paste pages.
There are three activities included in this activity pack. The first page is a life cycle of a frog mini-book.
I suggest printing this page on regular printer paper. Have students write the correct vocabulary word on the line in each box (egg, tadpole, etc.)
You may need to write the vocabulary words on a note card or post it for kids to look at as they write the words.
Cut apart the pages and staple them to create a mini book, if you’d like.
Not only does this page reinforce vocabulary words associated with the life cycle of a butterfly, but it’s a great way to introduce or reinforce the sight words I, see, and a.
BUTTERFLY LIFE CYCLE SEQUENCING
The next activity in this pack is a sequencing activity. One sheet is a numbered sequence mat. The other is a set of four sequence cards.
Print these two pages on regular printer paper. You can use colored printer paper if your kids don’t enjoy coloring.
Now, have your kids cut out the sequencing cards. This is a great way to let preschoolers strengthen their fine motor skills by using scissors to cut out the cards.
Glue the cards in the correct order on the sequencing mat.
If you’d like to make this activity reusable, you can laminate the cards and the mat. Add a velcro dot to each box and to the back of each card.
LIFE CYCLE OF A BUTTERFLY WORKSHEET
Finally, there is a one-page sequencing activity. Kids can color the life cycle pictures, or you can print the page on colored paper.
Have kids cut out the numbers at the bottom of the page. This is another opportunity for them to practice their scissor skills.
Or, you could build other fine motor muscles by letting them use a ½” circle punch to cut out the numbers.
Have them glue the numbers beside the appropriate image to sequence the life cycle of a frog.
