Frog Life Cycle Craft

We're still learning on animal's life cycles. Last Sunday we learnt about our green hopper friend, Mr Froggy.  We learnt that mother frog lays thousands of eggs in a pond.  It will then turn into a tadpole, which Iyra would love to keep in her small insect house.  She said "It's too cute! I cannot tahan!" We also learnt that the tadpole will then change to a froglet and finally to a charming prince after a good greeny kiss. 

You may need these materials to make this frog life cycle:
  1. Paper plate
  2. Green cardstock (Manila card)
  3. Felt paper for the lilypad
  4. Bubble wrap for the eggs
  5. Pipe cleaner for the frog's tongue
  6. Ladybug craft peg
  7. Googly eyes
  8. Sharpie

We found out some interesting facts about frog too.  You can check them out here:
  1. Frogs are amphibians.
  2. Frog drinks the water through the skin.
  3. A group of frog is called an 'army'.
  4. There are over 4,700 species of frogs. (Source)
  5. The study of amphibians and reptiles is called Herpetology, and those who study them are called Herpetologists.
  6. Croaking is used by male frogs as a way to attract females.
  7. A frog won't turn into a prince, no matter how many times you kiss him! (:P)

Videos on frogs:
There are a lots of free worksheets on frogs you can retrieve from the internet.  I think it's a good practice to have them do the worksheets to get to know their understanding after all the lessons.  

Till then, croak croak!

Symmetrical Portrait Drawing

Angels are often disguised as daughters.

A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give. 

Daughters are another version of yourself, only better.
