Red-Eyed Tree Frog
One of the most colorful frogs is the red-eyed tree frog. These frogs are made up of bright beautiful colors. Found in tropical rain forests in the lowlands from Central America up into Southern Mexico.
Even though they contain bright colors, they are actually not poisonous!
Red-eye tree frogs lay their eggs on the surface of leaves. As the eggs develop, they break open causing the developing tadpoles to fall into the water below. To learn more about red-eyed tree frogs visit National Geographic Kid's website.
Frog Life Cycle Free Printables
Simple to complex, these are perfect for kids. Pair these pages with a frog egg or tadpole hunt. Little ones are excited to see what they are learning about outside in the real word.
Observing frogs, a collection of eggs, and tadpoles at different stages of development are perfect activities for kids.
Similar to a butterfly, frogs undergo a metamorphosis. If conditions are favorable for them to stay in the tad pole stage they will delay developing into an adult frog.
Before turning into the frog that we are familiar with they grow legs while still in the tad pole stage. Back legs first, then front legs.
The tadpole is then considered a young frog as it develops and looses its gills and grows. The young frog, called a froglet completes its metamorphosis turning it into an adult frog.
Nature is amazing in so many ways! To learn more about the life cycle of frogs check out this resource which is great for kids who want to understand the different stages.
