  1. Learning About the Life Cycle of A Frog and Comparing and Contrasting Frogs and Toads Based on the Reading Story: Days With Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel

  2. Ordering The Stages Of A Frog’s Life Cycle

  3. Measuring and Comparing Distances of Paper Frog and Toad Jumpers

  4. Using Crafts To Learn About The Stages Of A Frog’s Life Cycle

  5. Ordering The Stages Of A Frog’s Life Cycle

  7. Vs. A group of frogs is A group of toads is called called an ARMY of frogs a KNOT of toads Frogs Toads

  8. vs. smooth or slimy skin warty and dry skin strong, long legs and stubby bodies with short webbed hind feet hind legs two bulging eyes parotid glands behind eyes lay eggs in clusters lay eggs in long chains Both are considered ectothermicor cold blooded because their body temperature adjusts with the outside environment. Frogs have: Toads have:

  9. Toads Frogs What’s the difference between frogs and a toads? • Warty and dry skin • Smooth and slimy skin • Hop • Jump • Warts on body • No warts on body • Live near or in water • Live on land, breed in water • Broader, flatter body • Narrower body and waist • Tiny teeth on both upper and lower jaws • No teeth • Short hind legs for walking instead of hopping • Webbed, long back feet for jumping and swimming

  10. Both frogs and toads are amphibians. How are they alike? This means they have two lives. They are born in the water as tadpoles. Then, they change into another animal as adults. Can you think of other ways frogs and toads are similar?

  11. What do frogs and toads sound like? Bullfrog American Toad Green Tree Frog Narrowmouth Toad

  12. Frogs and Toads 14 species in Pennsylvania 92 species in USA 3,300 species in the world

  14. Toads in Pennsylvania American Toad Fowler’s Toad

  15. Frogs in Pennsylvania Bull Frog Pickerel Green Frog Northern Spring Peeper Gray Treefrog Northern Cricket

  16. Frogs in Pennsylvania Eastern Spadefoot Wood Frog Northern Leopard Striped Chorus Mountain Chorus Southern Leopard

  17. Habitats For Frogs And Toads forests grasslands lakes, ponds, marshes rivers and streams

  18. Frogs are amphibians. They live in wet places. A Toad is a kind of frog. Frogs and Toads have four legs. Frogs use their legs to jump, and toads use their legs to hop. Some frogs use webbed feet to swim. Some use sticky feet to climb trees. Frogs that dig burrows have pointed toes. The word amphibian means “two lives.” Frogs and Toads have two lives because they start in the water and move to land. Insects that get too close to a frog or toad get eaten. Tadpoles eat algae then grow into frogs.

  19. How are frogs and toads similar and different? Toads Frogs

  20. The Life Cycle Of A Frog Life Cycle of a Frog

  21. Metamorphosis • Metamorphosis is the changes that a frog goes through during its life cycle. • There are four main stages in the life cycle of the frog.

  22. Egg • The first stage in the life cycle of the frog is the egg. • A frog lays many eggs at one time. • The eggs are covered with a jellylike coating.

  23. Tadpole • The second stage of the frog life cycle is the tadpole. • Hatched tadpoles have gills for breathing in the water. • They have a tail, but no legs.

  24. Metamorphosis • As a tadpole grows, lungs begin to form. • Back and front legs begin to grow. These parts allow the adult frog to live on land.

  25. Adult Frog • Once the lungs form and begin to work, the gills and tail disappear. • The adult frog is now ready to live on land.

  26. What is the first stage of the frog life cycle?

  27. The first stage of the frog life cycle is the egg.

  28. What is the second stageof the frog life cycle?

  29. The second stage of the frog life cycle is the tadpole.

  30. What is the third stageof the frog life cycle?

  31. The third stage of the frog life cycle is the froglet.

  32. What is the fourth stageof the frog life cycle?

  33. The last stage of the frog life cycle is the adult frog.
