Frogs are obviously the most popular amphibian for preschoolers to study, but newts and salamanders are also appropriate amphibians for preschoolers to learn more about. A newt is a salamander in the subfamily Pleurodelinae. The terrestrial juvenile phase is called an eft.

More than known species of newts are found in North America, Europe, North Africa and Asia. Newts Class: Amphibia.
Amphibians: Amphibians, like frogs and newts, have a slightly more complicated life cycle. They undergo a metamorphosis (a big change): they are born (either alive from their mother or hatched from eggs) they spend their childhood under water, breathing with gills; they grow into adults and move to the land, breathing with lungs. There are three main groups of amphibians: frogs and toads, salamanders and newts, and the wormlike caecilians. Amphibians are similar to reptiles in many ways, but most have smooth, moist skin, while reptiles are usually dry and scaly. Amphibians were the first four-limbed vertebrates to walk the earth.
