  1. 1. Read the paragraphs below and use the Life Cycle of Frogs diagram to label the paragraphs 1-10: ___ As tadpoles grow, the gills become covered __ with skin. The tadpoles use their pointed mouth to stick to plants and rocks. They eat algae. Camouflage is their only protection. ___ A daddy frog and a mummy frog are ready __ to have lots of baby frogs. Mummy lays lots of eggs. Eggs are tiny and have a jellylike coating. ___ With its tail completely reabsorbed, an adult __ frog can now live on land but usually stays near water because it needs to keep its skin moist. Adult frogs also return to the water to lay eggs. ___ Tadpoles come from eggs. The eggs need __ to be kept moist so the adult frogs usually lay them in water. The eggs are grouped together . The tadpoles live inside the eggs until they can break out.
  2. 2. ___ The front legs develop and the tadpole __ looks more and more like a frog every day. At this stage, it is called a ‘froglet’. ___ The back legs begin to sprout first. The __ tadpole starts to swim occasionally, but mostly stays attached to plants and rocks. The mouth also begins to widen. ___ Now the adult frog is ready to find a very __ good friend and they together will have lots of little eggs with tadpoles inside. The life cycle starts again. ___ As the back legs and tail become larger and __ stronger, the tadpole can now swim around and catch food. It can also start to swim to the surface to catch a breath of air as its lungs begin to develop. ___ When tadpoles pop out from the eggs, they __ breathe through gills. At first, the gills are on the outside of their body. ___ The tail is reabsorbed. The nutrients in the __ tail help the frog to grow. The frog is now
  3. 3. breathing air and eating insects. Answer the following questions using the paragraphs above. Where are the gills when the tadpole first hatches? What do tadpoles eat? How do tadpoles protect themselves? What are groups of frog eggs called? Which develops first? The front legs or the back legs? What is a frog with a tail called? What happens to the tail before the froglet becomes an adult?
  4. 4. Why do adult frogs stay near water? What does a young tadpole’s mouth look like?
