Review the life cycle of a butterfly
with this cute Very Hungry Caterpillar
There are several options
For one of the caterpillars
, students trace and write the words and then color, cut and glue the realistic graphics
to the appropriate "body segments".
An easier version
, includes cute clip art right on the circles, skipping the "cut & glue" steps.
I've included a full-color "teacher's version"
of this caterpillar
, so that you can quickly and easily
make a sample
There are 4 head options
Wiggle eyes, a tiny white pom pom for the egg, plus a pipe cleaner folded into a V, then taped to the back of the caterpillar's head as antennae, all add that 3D bit of pizzazz
Folding the wings of an extra butterfly up, then gluing just the thorax to the bottom butterfly, also adds the finishing touch "Wow! factor"
Completed projects make a wonderful spring bulletin board
I've included a colorful poster
for the center of your display.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy crafting a caterpillar's life cycle, as they learn a bit of science.
