Room 8 have got tadpoles. As you can see, they are developing into frogs. The tadpoles that have grown legs, but are still swimming in the water, are called froglets. When a creature like a frog changes from one type of animal to another it is called metamorphosis. Frogs are a special type of animal called amphibians. Amphibious animals can breathe in the water and survive on land.
|Oliver and Blake are going to make some fly-traps so that we can catch some live flies for the frogs. The boys will need to make them soon because it looks like one of the froglets will be a frog any day now!|
This is the habitat we made for the frogs. They need to be able to get out of the water and onto land when they have finished growing their legs.
