Your students can learn about metamorphosis by studying the caterpillar and the butterfly. Students will be introduced to caterpillars and butterflies by listening to Eric Carle's story The Hungry Caterpillar. They will also learn the four stages (egg, larva, pupa, adult) by seeing pictures of them and completing a worksheet and putting the stages in order. Finally, students will use art to make their own caterpillar and butterfly crafts. A fun extension of this subject would be to purchase your own butterfly kit.
