Why the butterflies and caterpillars? When I teach my students about irregular past tense verbs, I make an analogy to butterflies. Just as a butterfly looks quite different from its original form (the caterpillar), irregular verbs can look quite different from their original present tense form!
Also, a few past tense verbs stay the same whether they are written in present or past tense (in this craftivity, they remain caterpillars rather than changing into a butterfly).
If you want to try this analogy with your own students, you may want to check out my Irregular Past Tense Verbs PowerPoint , where the analogy is explained and supported with visuals.
