🐸 Printable Life Cycle of a Frog Mini-Book

Are you looking for an alternative to a textbook when teaching about life cycles? This life cycle of a frog mini-book is the perfect addition to your science lessons and will give your students the information they need! This mini-book includes 8 pages of information, graphic organizers, and comprehension checks. Students will learn about each stage of a frog’s life cycle:

  • frogspawn
  • tadpole
  • froglet
  • adult frog

Students will also compare and contrast different stages of the frog life cycle as well as draw a diagram of the different stages.

The book has been designed as a printable mini-book for you to print either single sided or  front-to-back, cut in half, and assembled into a half-size booklet.

Through this activity, students will investigate how a frog undergoes a series of orderly changes in its life cycles.
