We have been learning about the stages in the classroom as it happens to them. I posted these caterpillars / larva project that have facts on them to learn about the stages.
I did the facts one by one and didn't show them what it would turn out like until we were done. They were so excited to see that the facts all make a caterpillar. It is put so that you can copy all the facts on different colors or it has one sheet that has all the facts together on it. Plus it makes great decorations for hanging up in the room.Check out my blog in June 2011 Caterpillar facts for pictures of the final product http://petersonsprimarypeeps.blogspot.com/
