Montessori-inspired Amphibian Activities with Free Printables (Learn & Play Link Up)

This post contains affiliate links.

We have been having a delightful time studying amphibians.  I had no idea how much the kiddos would enjoy learning about them. The compilation of these activities was perfect!  Each one focuses on a different skill the kiddos are working on, and/or teaches about a different aspects of amphibians, especially frogs.

Parts of a Frog and Description Match Up
It's always fun to learn about the parts of a frog, but even more fun when you learn interesting facts that go along with each body part.  The kiddos loved learning the facts on each of the description cards far more than I anticipated.

Amphibians Around the World Continent Match Up
It's only natural that we could continue our animal studies with amphibian around the world cards.  They are such a hit on our shelves.  There are some pretty crazy looking frogs out there!  The continent puzzle pieces used for this activity are part of my Montessori Puzzle Map of World.

Amphibian Who Am I? Cards

My kiddos are loving our "Who Am I" activities as we've gone through the different types of animals this year.  This amphibian set gave them a little bit of a challenge, but not for long.  Bulldozer can read every word on these cards!

Parts of a Frog Book
It's one thing to read descriptions of parts of a frog, but another to color them in and write the words.  I chose this activity because all of the kiddos are competent writers now and I love finding ways to add writing to our activities.

Parts of a Frog Puzzle
One would think the kiddos would have been sick of parts of a frog activities, but truth be told they weren't!  There is just something about this Montessori Wooden Frog Puzzle that draws them in.  Have I mentioned how in love with Montessori puzzles I've become this year?  They are such great teaching tools!

Life Cycle of a Frog
I looked everywhere to find a free life cycle of a frog printable with descriptions to go along with my Safari Ltd Life Cycle of a Frog figures but had no luck.  So, we had to create one.  My kiddos loved this activity. I can't figure out if they enjoyed the facts on the cards or the tadpole figures best.

I never thought I'd be sad that our amphibian unit has ended, but I am.  We had such a great time!
