  • 1. Frogs Change happens
    • AMPHIBIAN: Living both in water and on land
      • They begin life in the water as an egg, grow into tadpoles that breathe with gills and then grow into adults that breathe air (from Greek amphibion : amphi ‘both’ + bios ‘life’ )
      • Some types of amphibians:
        • Frogs and Toads
        • Salamanders and Newts
  • 3. It’s a Frog’s Life
    • Frogs begin life as an egg
    • Female frogs can lay as many as 20,000 eggs at one time
    • The eggs have to be fertilized by a male frog
    • Frog eggs have a protective jelly-like coating that tastes bad to predators
    • The egg masses are called egg sacks or frogspawn
  • 4. Life Begins
    • It takes about 6 to 21 days for a frog egg to hatch
    • The tadpoles wiggle inside the egg until they can break free
    • Tadpoles emerge from the egg, eating the remains of their egg
    • Tadpoles have a mouth, poorly formed gills for breathing, and a tail
    • Tadpoles eat algae and camouflage is their only protection. They hide in plants
  • 5. Metamorphosis
    • Metamorphosis is the change in the form or structure after birth or hatching
    • At 6 to 9 weeks, the tadpole has grown tiny legs and arms and can breath air as its lungs develop
    • A tadpole grows legs first and then arms. Skin grows over their gills
    • They begin to eat insects and plants
    • Watch this video of the process so far: from egg to froglet
  • 6. Froglet
    • At 12 weeks, the tadpole’s body, legs, and arms are bigger and its tail is smaller. The tadpole has become a ‘froglet’
    • Froglets can live outside of the water, they breath air and eat insects
    • Froglets reabsorb their tail to help them grow
  • 7. Frog
    • Once the tail is fully absorbed, the froglet has become a frog
    • Frogs eat insects and worms
    • Frogs stay close to the water so the cycle can begin again
  • 8. Fun Facts
    • The largest frog in the world, Africa’s Goliath Frog:
      • The smallest frog in the world: you decide.
        • The Bornean Micro Frog: http :// 100825 -new-species-pea-size-frog-science-pictures /

    • Life Sciences
    • 2. Plants and animals have predictable life cycles. As a basis for understanding this concept:
      • a. Students know that organisms reproduce offspring of their own kind and that the offspring resemble their parents and one another.
      • b. Students know the sequential stages of life cycles are different for different animals, such as butterflies, frogs, and mice.
