A Report on Frogs by Britelle - Grade 4

Frogs belong to a group called amphibians. Toads are amphibians too. Toads lay eggs in the springtime. They hatch and turn into tadpoles. They have large tails so they can swim around. They eat pond plants and animals. Tadpoles breathe through their gills. Their tail shrinks and it grows legs and turns into a frog. Frogs breathe through their lungs so they have to swim to the surface to breathe. They have strong backlegs so they can jump long distances. Frogs are good swimmers. They live on land by a pond. They eat worms, snails and other insects. They have long sticky tongues so they can catch flies. During winter they go into a deep sleep.
