Life Cycle of a Frog

Conclusion

In this WebQuest we learned about the life cycle of frogs. We learned that a tadpole hatches out of an egg.  Tadpoles have a body and a tail, but no legs.  Tadpoles also have gills like fish.  Then, they grow back legs and then front legs.  They gradually lose their tail and begin to breathe through their lungs.  Now they are frogs! Frogs can live on land and in water.
