Life cycle of a frog explanation
From Tadpole to Frog by Wendy PfefferWinner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series
A tadpole is a baby frog!
Female frogs lay masses of jelly-coated eggs in the water, but what hatches from each egg isnt a frog yet—its a tadpole. Tadpoles are likely tiny fish that breathe underwater through gills. As the tadpole gets older, it loses its fishy tail and its gills and grows legs and develops lungs. The tadpole has become a frog. From Tadpole to Frog is a lovely first look at this amazing metamorphosis.

Frogs and Their Life Cycle. Michigan Curriculum Framework Science Benchmarks. Organization of Living Things. National Standard C. I plan on doing this though the lifecycle poster, flashcards, Jeopardy, and a quiz. I have highlighted the information that I found important.
The frog eggs will hatch within days, depending on the species and water temperature. They will hatch faster if the water is warmer. Colder temperatures will slow down the hatching process. Eggs vary in size, colors and shapes with different species. The eggs are usually covered with a jellylike substance that acts like a protective coating. Even the jelly differs, depending on species.
