The Life Cycle of a Frog

This term we are being scientists and as a class we are inquiring into the life cycles of different animals and how these are interdependent on each other.

We started with the life cycle of the frog. This week in writing we have been exploring this life cycle and we have made a movie about it. We started with writing a story board and then we learnt hot to create a movie using Photo Story.

Grade 3/4 watch the videos our class has made. Then leave constructive feedback about how everyone has used ‘the Arts’ (movie making) to communicate their learning.

  1. Wow 3/4 LB!
    I can’t begin to imagine how you actually created your own YouTube movie! The scripts and picture selection were so cleverly put together.

      Thank you for your nice comment. We hope you see all of our other things on our blog.

      For the voice overs we practiced with our group and we think we did very well because we collaborated very well.

  3. These videos are absolutely amazing 3/4LB! They are so informative and the voice over really adds to the effect of the movie. I love the pictures you have used also.

  4. Wow 3/4LB! I am very impressed. I thought your movies presented your information very clearly and I now have a better understanding of the life cycle of a frog. I didn’t realise they laid so many eggs!

      We are doing a Mealworm show next time.

  6. Great job Samantha, Ava, Taya and Edwina I really liked how you used a nice loud and clear voice. I also liked all of your pictures and you had some really good information. Well done girls!!!

  7. Hi El, Bridget and Elly,
    Although I find frogs to be a little slimy and don’t really like them much (i’m a little scared of them!!!) your photo story was quite interesting and gave me a good understanding of how they come to be the way that they are. I did not know they could lay that many eggs at once – I suppose that explains why there are so many of them!!! I am amazed to see how they start out and then what they actually become when fully grown…..Well done girls I enjoyed the presentation.

  8. My first visit to your blog and I am wanting to learn more!You were not only able to teach me that a frog grows its back legs first but you have also been on the news!!! You are legends… but I have always known that!!
    Go 3/4LB

  9. Awesome work Bridget, Elly and El I like how you spoke at the same time at the start, but when you speak speak more louder.

  10. Well done Ava, Taya, Samantha and Edwina.
    I really liked your pictures and the way you spoke clearly, maybe next time Edwina could say a part as well.

    Ariana ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. I think this is a great idea to incorporate a fun activity for the students that involves them in creating something and using a high level in Blooms Taxonomy. I think that assignments like these help ideas stick in student’s brains better, rather than a basic lecture. I know when I go into teaching I hope to have lessons that allow students to create things. With technology becoming an integral part of the classroom, having students create videos and uploading them onto the internet to be shared, I believe is extremely valuable because of the interaction with the technology. Well done.

  12. Great job everyone! All of the videos were set up well and easy to follow. The sound was very clear and the pictures went great with the dialog! keep up the great work!

  13. Great job Jessica, Ailish, Araina and Alice!!! I really liked how you put lots of information in your photo story and all of your images. I also liked how you used a clear voice. Awesome work girls!!!

  14. Hi El, Elly and Bridget,
    I really liked your photo story, you spoke really clearly and the pictures you chose were really cool { my favourite was the froglet} Well done>

  18. To Samantha,Edwina,Ava,Taya

    Good work girls! I didn’t know all the facts involved in the life cycle of a frog,
    very interesting and informative. I find frogs erky, let me tell you why, once when I was sitting by a pond in a park a tiny slimy frog landed on my shoulder and frightened me so much I screamed so loud I nearly collapsed! ๐Ÿ™ I guess it scarred me for life. Loved your presentation, look forward to more photo stories.

  19. Great job El, Elly and Bridget I really liked your facts that you used, they were really interesting. You really hooked me in, you included the importance of how the frog really develops. GREAT JOB GIRLS!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  20. Dear Ailish, Jessica, Alice and Ariana,
    Every one used great expression and lots of detail was included. You had a good choice of colours in the writing and the use of language was impressive.
    By Sarah 3/4A

  21. Very clear and informative information. I really liked the way some of the children used emphasis in their speech.

  22. Dear Samantha, Taya, Ava , Edwina,
    Great job with your “life cycle of a frog” photostory! I liked how you were speaking clearly so that we could understand you and i also love the pictures because most of them were real which means you can actually see what it looks like in real life! AWESOME job girls!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
    From Yassi

  23. Dear Ava,Edwina,Samantha and Taya

    Your groups fluency is outstanding!!!
    Great job guys. Can’t wait to see your next video.
    From Leo.

  25. Dear Ben, Matthew and Gerard

    I think you did a great job on your “A lifecycle of a frog”. I learnt that at the age of six weeks the tadpole doesn’t have gills.

    From Thomas 3/4A

  26. Great job Bridget, Elly and El,
    I really liked how you spoke clearly and used good pictures for it. Maybe next time you could speak a little slower.

    • HI Alice,

      I like the comment you gave us. I agree with you. Next tinme my group and I will try to speak a bit slower.

      From Bridget

  27. Awesome work Daniel, Anthony and Josh.
    I like how you spoke slowly and did cool effects for the first page, and last page.
    Maybe next time you could speak a little more clearly.

  28. Hi Samantha, Ava, Edwina and Taya,

    I really liked your photo story on the Life Cycle of a Frog.
    Your voices were very clear and you used great language.
    Great job guys.

    From Zara 3/4A

  29. Good job Ben, Matthew and Gerard.
    I really liked how you spoke clearly and slowly. Maybe next time you could speak a little bit louder, because there was background talking.

  30. Excellent job Lachie, Jason and Mostyn.
    I think you spoke clearly, slowly and had great pictures.
    Awesome work guys! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. Awesome job Edwina, Sam, Ava and Taya.
    I think you did really well with 4 people. I loved how you spoke clearly and the description was detailed.
    AWESOME TEAM WORK!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. To Mostyn,Jason and Lackie,
    I like how you have finished your life cycle of a frog.I think you have done a great job by dividing everthing so everyone can have a turn at everything and also you related the pictures to the writing very well.

    By Joshua 3/4A.

  33. Hi Ailish, Ariana, Alice & Jessica,
    I like your photo story of “The Lifecycle of a frog.
    I like how you all spoke clearly and I under stood every sentence you said.
    The Image were very appropriate.
    I also found the photo story very interesting.
    Keep up the good work!
