Frog Life Cycle Activity

Like other amphibians, frogs undergo several life changes before they reach adulthood. The female frog lays her eggs in a sticky mass, often attached to a plant underwater. When the eggs hatch, the little tadpoles swim around on their own, looking for food. Eventually, their tails get smaller, disappear, and they grow hind legs. Now they are frogs, and can lay eggs on their own!
