Lifecycles - From spawn to frog


Did you know only five out of every 2,000 frogspawn eggs survive into adulthood? Teach your pupils about the fascinating life cycle of the common frog.

In this lesson students will learn to notice that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults and that different things can harm their local, natural and built environments. The children will use fun activities including games, activity sheets and creating a display to develop strategies and skills needed to care for these animals.
