This is an activity where learners will compare the different metamorphosis stages of amphibians. By matching different life stages of different species, the learners can compare and contrast key characteristics and stages of the life cycle. Learners will match larval stages to adult stages and notice bodily changes in the growth process. This activity can be modified for a slightly more advanced topic.
