How to Teach Frog and Tadpole Science to Preschoolers

While completing frog activities, like a frog life cycle activity, a paper plate frog, or egg carton frogs, you will want to add frog science preschool activities and other kids frog lessons and activities for your frog theme.

Here is some helpful information to share with your preschool class while completing these frog crafts and activities for kids.

Start by introducing the concept of frogs and tadpoles in a simple and engaging way. You can use picture books, videos, or even toys to show what frogs and tadpoles look like.

Explain the life cycle of a frog in simple terms. Show pictures or diagrams illustrating the stages: egg, tadpole, froglet, and adult frog. Use props like plastic models or drawings to make it more tangible for preschoolers.

Plan hands-on activities to help preschoolers understand the concepts better. For example:

  • Set up a tadpole observation tank where children can watch tadpoles grow and develop.
  • Provide coloring sheets or crafts where children can create their own frogs and tadpoles.
  • Use sensory bins with water and toy frogs/tadpoles for tactile exploration.

Read books about frogs and tadpoles. Choose age-appropriate stories that capture children’s imaginations and teach valuable lessons about nature.

Review the frog learning concepts regularly, Have your preschoolers draw pictures of the frog life cycle or retell the story of a frog’s growth from tadpole to adult.
