Frog Life Cycle Poster

Lesson #10038

Create a chart depicting the frog life cycle.
Can use either AllStar or SureCut Dies.

Grade Level:
1-2, 3-5

This interactive fold-out chart allows students to visualize stages of the frog life cycle. Specifically, students identify the characteristics present at each stage of development, understanding that each stage leads to the next in the circle of life. Showcase these charts by displaying them on the science bulletin board for Open House.

Identify the stages of growth and development in the frog life cycle.
