God Makes the Pond Animals: Frogs
This is part of our preschool learning we did at home. It includes ideas that can be used at home to learn about God's creation. *This is intended for home use or preschool (or kindergarten) classes. They are not intended for Bible class.*
We began our study about frogs with these information posters I created. They are two to a page to save printing. They have a real photo and information text easy for preschoolers to understand and hold their interest. Click here to download the posters.
 I put together notebooks for each person that included each habitat. I added the other animals we would be looking at like farm and pets to the same notebook. These Pond animal posters were created to be able to see each pond animal. I used real photos and put two per page to save ink. Just cut down the middle after printing and they are ready to use. I kept them simple, but tried to find full bodies of the animals in their habitat.  Click here to download. 
I found a free template for a frog here. I added the long legs because they love long-legged anything and it seemed fun for a frog craft! You can find more free frog crafts here.
They had so much fun with these blowup frogs! See the frogs here. 
I found these wood frogs & ladybugs here.
 We looked at a frog's life cycle and they enjoyed this hands-on set.
After discussing the life cycle with the frog posters and the above hand-on set, they cut and glued this frog life cycle foldable. They loved these! "Hey, it folds up & looks like a frog!" See the life cycle frog here.
They liked this frog jumping game! But it is pretty hard to get them into the pond. They basically hop straight up in the air for the kids.
We looked at these books from the library. This means this is what our library had available. If there is not a link, then it was not on Amazon at the time of posting. I suggest looking at your library to see what is available for free and if you love any of the books, then purchase them. Most of these are not really for preschoolers.

A couple that they liked were:
The Wide-Mouthed Frog (favorite)    Can I Tell You a Secret? (loved)   Frog on a Log (not pictured)

Most of the information on the Photo Posters is found here.
