  • Tadpole A tadpole also called a pollywog is the larval stage in the life cycle of an amphibian, particularly that of a frog or toad.They are usually wholly aquatic, though some species have tadpoles that are terrestrial.When first hatched from the egg they have a or less globular body, a laterally compressed tail and internal or external gills.As they grow they undergo metamorphosis, during Tadpole Galaxy The Tadpole Galaxy is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located million light years from Earth in the northern constellation Draco.Its most dramatic feature is a massive trail of stars about , light years long the size of the galaxy has been attributed to a merger with a smaller galaxy that is believed to have occurred about million years ago. TADPOLE CRAFT backyard camera TADPOLE BACKYARD wagon life works TADPOLE BACKYARD Tadpole Definition of Tadpole by Merriam Webster a larval amphibian specifically a frog or toad larva that has a rounded body with a long tail bordered by fins and external gills soon replaced by internal gills and that undergoes a metamorphosis to the adult tadpole English Spanish Dictionary WordReference tadpole Translation to Spanish, pronunciation, and forum discussions Tadpole Gasket High Temperature Tadpoles Gaskets Tadpole Gasket Our Tadpole gaskets are designed to provide a high temperature thermal seal in industrial laboratory, commercial and residential ovens and dryers with a maximum continuous operating temperature of F C. Tadpole zoology Britannica Tadpole, also called polliwog, aquatic larval stage of frogs and toads.Compared with the larvae of salamanders, tadpoles have short, oval bodies, with broad tails, small mouths, and no external gills The internal gills are concealed by a covering known as an operculum. Most tadpoles are vegetarians, although those of a few species are carnivorous or even cannibalistic.

    1. Awards the book has received (if any): American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Appropriate grade level(s): kindergarten- 2ndOriginal 3-line summary: This book describes the life cycle of an egg to a frog. It goes through each stage describing how an egg can go to something such as a fish first, but then turn into a frog. It also goes into detail about its lungs and gills.Original 3-line review: Just as the butterfly book, this book is really good for children of a younger age [...]

    2. This book describes the life cycle of the frog. As frogs come out of hibernation from the winter the males call out for the females to mate. Thousands of eggs are fertilized and become tiny tadpoles. The tadpoles grow and hibernate. When spring comes around the tadpoles sprout into frogs, losing their tails and growing larger. This is a good book to describe the life cycle in the classroom. The illustrations are well and clear, I even learned something new! (Frogs hibernate in winter!)

    3. Alice loves books about nature and animals. That said, this one was very long, detailing the entire life cycle of the American bullfrog from conception to death. It took two days. The illustrations were very good. Alice felt the need to explain each page prior to reading it based on the pictures. We also learned a couple of new reading words, like "fertilizes" and "brownish-speckled."

    4. "The females hear the call. The male hugs his mate. He fertilizes her eggs as she lays them in the water." (10)You should see the illustration!

    5. I read this book to my Kindergartners today to follow up on what they learned about the life cycle of a frog this week. It is a very good book with simple language and clear illustrations to facilitate readers' understanding of what stages the frogs are going through from when they are born a tadpole to until they become an adult frog. The metamorphoses of the frog's life can be described easily after reading this story. I specifically loved how the four seasons are mentioned as well as what is [...]

    6. This is a great book because it tells the life cycle of a frog in a very colorful way with great illustrations! Wendy Pfeffer takes the reader all the way from a mere tadpole all the way up to a big frog. I like the way that she goes through the life cycle in an educational way while still using language that kids can relate to and enjoy!This is a great read aloud book while doing a science unit over life cycle and about a tadpole transforming into a frog! As an independent read, this book could [...]

    7. This book is a very basic and easy to understand approach to topic that can be confusing. Despite new vocabulary words like Metamorphosis and Froglet, my third graders really grasped the concept. Many of my student's had heard of tadpoles and all had heard of frogs so they were excited for the topic. The book offers great images to illustrate each phase of the frog's life cycle. I assigned each student a phase and they drew and wrote a small paragraph about their phase. Great book for life scien [...]

    8. This book was about the life cycle of a frog. It tells you facts about frogs and how they grow. We liked this book because it was funny. A funny part was when the tadpoles were munching on the plants. We loved learning a lot of new things about frogs. We think the author wrote this book so that we could learn more about frogs. We think that other kids would like this book because it can make them smarter. ANY person that likes frogs will love this book! We would also recommend this book for anyo [...]

    9. From Tadpole to Frog is an information book that covers the life cycle of frogs. It starts from the egg and works its way to the frog stage. The book uses great vocabulary and would be good for read alouds and independent reading. I'd use this for a science lesson and could very easily add art. The illustrations are great and will help for engaging students. My favorite part of this text is the end where there are illustrations and extra information on different species of frogs.

    10. This book has a lot of great information about frogs. I wanted to read this book because I was curious to learn more than what I already know about frogs. I was not disappointed since I learned that frogs hibernate in the winter at the bottom of the pond in the mud. I think my students would enjoy this book as well.

    11. William was interested in the frog life cycle and we had just visited the pond. Our librarian found exactly what I wanted: Nonfiction that reads like a story. Art reminds me of Nancy Tafuri, which was nice. Be forwarded: Frog sex. I had just given my kids just about the same explaination a few days prior, so they didn't bat an eye.

    12. This non-fiction book does a great job of teaching children about the life cycle of a frog. It has a gross out factor when describing the egg and the metamorphosis of a frog. This would be a great book to incorporate to your students about the life cycle.

    13. This would be a great book to use when teaching life cycle. This book takes the reader through the growth from egg to bullfrog. The students would be able to see how the frog changes as the seasons change. The pictures are detailed and it doesn't read like a science book.

    14. This is a great book that has simple text, and great illustrations, this will be a wonderful book to use when learning life cycles.

    15. For kindergarten children, I would use this book for science to explain to children the transformation of a tadpole into a frog. In addition, explain the characteristics of a tadpole and a frog.

    16. This book shows the reader the different stages that a frog undergoes when it is born. I would use this book in my classroom to have nonfiction books available for reading over various topics.
