How to Use Frog Activities for Preschool for a Preschool Frog Theme

I like to use STEM unit-based teaching to introduce STEM topics to preschoolers. A STEM thematic unit is a framework for teaching everything a young child needs to know, all centered around a central theme (in this case, frogs).

These frog activities for preschool include elements of math, reading, social studies, science, language arts, and STEM. Most thematic units are used at the preschool and kindergarten level, although you can also study using some elements of unit studies in older grades.

While most classroom teachers stop using thematic units around third grade, many homeschooling families use the concept of thematic units to learn well into middle school.

Frog Facts for Kids

Here are some fun frog facts you can share with your preschool classroom!

Frogs are excellent jumpers! They use their powerful back legs to leap and hop around. Some frogs can jump up to 20 times their body length.

Frogs have smooth, moist skin that helps them stay hydrated. It also absorbs oxygen, which means they can breathe through their skin as well as their lungs.

Frogs catch their food, like insects and worms, by flicking out their long, sticky tongues. Their tongues can shoot out quickly to catch prey in the blink of an eye!

Planning a frog theme? These frog theme activities will give preschoolers and kindergarten kids everything they need to learn with a frog thematic unit! These frog activity ideas will make lesson planning a breeze. The perfect spring activities for the preschool classroom! #thematicunit #preschool #handsonlearning #springactivities

Frogs come in many different colors, like green, brown, red, and even blue! Some frogs can even change color to match their surroundings.

Most frogs start their lives as tadpoles, living underwater and breathing through gills. As they grow, they develop lungs and legs, and eventually, they become adult frogs that can live on land.

Frogs have big, bulging eyes that help them see in all directions. They can even see above and below the water at the same time!

Frogs are cold-blooded, which means their body temperature changes with the temperature of their surroundings. That’s why you’ll often see them sunbathing on rocks to warm up.

Frogs don’t have teeth like we do. Instead, they have a bony ridge in their mouths called a maxillary arch, which they use to hold onto their food before swallowing it whole.

Female frogs lay their eggs in water or in damp places. Some frogs even carry their eggs on their backs to keep them safe from predators until they hatch into tadpoles.

Preschool Frog Activities and Fun Frog Crafts for Kids

These frog activities for preschool offer a fun way to explore a topic around a central theme. In this case, the theme is frogs!

With frog activities for preschool, kids will use this frog theme for preschool printables and frog science preschool activities to learn about the frog life cycle and so much more!

Here are some examples of what preschoolers can learn when you put together a frog theme using these frog activities for preschool.

In science, kids learn about the frog life cycle. With technology frog activities for preschool, kids can learn about how scientists study frogs and use frogs to help learn about the world with hands-on frog crafts and activities.

With frog math activities for preschool, kids complete math activities using frog themes. Preschoolers can also use frog activities for preschool to learn reading comprehension, sequencing, art, themes, and a whole lot more!

There is almost no end to how much you can learn with a frog theme preschool activity.
