Since a cycle is like a circle
, I thought it would be appropriate to design the life cycle of a frog
on 5 different, circular-puzzle patterns
, as a super-fun way to teach and practice this science standard.
In celebration of life in general, I’m knocking a dollar off for a limited time.
The puzzles come in color
to use for an independent center
, or whole group “What comes next?”
activity, where you pass the pieces out to your students to help explain
, then review
the frog’s life cycle
I’ve also included black and white
so children can color, cut and make their own puzzle to take home, which makes 10 puzzles
in the packet.
Students can keep theirs as a puzzle, pick a partner
and play “Speed”
against them, to see who can be the first to put their puzzle together in the correct order, or you can use it as a comprehension worksheet
, and have children glue the pieces together on the matching puzzle base.
To practice more standards, there are 3 puzzle-base worksheets
for each puzzle that you can choose from: there’s a blank
one, another with ordinal numbers
, as well as words
labeling the life cycle.
To add variety
, as well as have the ability to diversify
, I’ve included 4, 5
and 6—piece puzzles
Some have realistic graphics
of the frog’s life cycle, while others are semi-realistic
, as well as cutesy
So you can also test comprehension
, reinforce the life cycle’s order
, as well as practice writing and the science vocabulary
, I’ve also included a sequencing
“What Comes Next?” writing-prompt worksheet.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning and practicing the life cycle of a frog
while putzing with a puzzle.
