What is the life cycle
When Jim turned back to home, he was very worried. He wasn’t talking or smiling, he was only thinking. Jim’s mother realized his situation asked him what happened. He didn’t reply because he didn’t hear. Mother repeated and Jim recovered oneself. He started to tell what happened.
Jim: Mom, Teacher gave a homework about the life of a Frog.
Mother: It a good case, isn’t it? you will learn new information.
Jim: But I don’t know where I can get information.
Mother: What about searching on the internet?
Jim: It is a great idea. Let’s start.
They started to search for information about the life cycle of a Frog. Mother read and Jim took notes.
Mother: There are four stages of any frog’s life cycle.
The first stage is the egg stage. Eggs are usually laid in or near water. A frog can lay thousands of eggs at once. The eggs are laid in large groups. There are covered in jelly which makes them slippery. The jelly protects them from other animals eating the eggs. The second stage is the tadpole stage.A tadpole hatches from the egg. The tadpole breathes using gills and moves like a fish. It uses its long tail to swim. Tadpoles eat tiny water plants. The third stage is the froglet stage. It grows lungs and legs. Its gills disappear. Its tail gets shorter until it disappears too. The froglet swims to the top of the water to breathe air. The last stage is the adult stage. A frog can leave the water now and live on land. It eats insects, worms, and snails. Mother frogs return to the water to lay eggs. Jim thanked his mom and decided to appeal for help when he is a problem. You can show the life cycle of a Frog by drawing a picture.
