Diagram of a frog - frog diagram labeled


Diagram of a frog labelledThis page features a frog diagram labeled through a drag and drop worksheet and game. Students love talking about frog related stories, but have you ever thought about the different parts of a frog and their varied functions? This activity is an anatomy activity for children learning biology. They will learn about the parts of a frog by labelling a diagram in the correct order. This worksheet can serve parents at home and in the classroom for teachers who want to make their classroom much fun. Frogs are amazing creatures when you get to learn about them in detail. Why not start by labelling this diagram. This exercise is for students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades.


A well labelled diagram of a frog and toad

Here is a description of the function of each part of the frog:

  • Head - contains the brain, which controls the body's functions and sensory organs
  • Mouth - used for eating, drinking, and respiration
  • Eye - senses light and helps the frog see its surroundings
  • Foreleg - used for movement and catching prey
  • Hindleg - used for movement and jumping
  • Hand (foreleg) - used for gripping and manipulating objects
  • Foot (hindleg) - used for gripping and climbing
  • Eardrum (tympanum) - senses sound waves and helps the frog hear
  • Nostril - used for smelling and breathing

Frog Life Cycle

Watch your classrooms turn into a frog pond with this frog life cycle craft! The frog life cycle includes eggs, tadpoles and adult frogs. Help your children learn to identify frogs and their stages of growth. The frog life cycle is a fascinating phenomenon. Frogs live in many different environments all over the world and are closely related to toads and salamanders. The species of frog changes depending on the area. Some frogs live in arid conditions, while others prefer a wetter environment. Some frogs even will burrow into soil under leaf litter to stay cool during hot summer months. The frog life cycle begins with the laying of the egg. Frog eggs vary in color, size, and shape depending on the species of frog. In most cases, a froggy momma will deposit her eggs into a pond or lake with sperm from the male. It isn't long before those tadpoles swim out of the water and into their new homes. During this phase of the frog life cycle there are no parental duties to be fulfilled; instead, tadpoles are on their own to find food and protect themselves. Eggs are laid in a large mass and this mass can contain up to 8000 eggs. Eggs are ellipsoidal (oval), measuring about 0.5mm to 1.0 mm in diameter, this size range means that they can be easily missed if the female is collected and any eggs will likely be destroyed during later preparation of samples. freshly laid eggs are bright orange and after a few hours they darken to a red-brown colour, then changing to blackish brown within a day or two. Tadpoles have an elongated, cylindrical body with small discs at both ends, large hind legs for swimming, an upward facing mouth and eyes on the top of the head. Newly hatched tadpoles are about 2mm long but grow rapidly and soon become too large for their egg case which then disintegrates around them as they swim away from it. Tadpoles can take from 2 to 10 weeks to go through metamorphosis depending on water temperature, low temperatures generally resulting in longer time periods before metamorphosis takes place as metabolic processes slow down. Lifespan: The average lifespan of a frog is approximately 10 years. Average size: Frogs are generally small; their size is relative to the environment in which they were born (small frogs are found in small ponds).
