The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a fun story that can be read from Pre-K through 1st grade. It is about a caterpillar who eats a lot of different food items each day, and displays the life cycle of a caterpillar.

 

You can do a sequencing activity with this story, determining what the caterpillar ate each day, or you can do a science activity about the life cycle of a caterpillar. You can give the students a picture of a caterpillar with Monday - Sunday written in each part of the caterpillar's body, and the students can either write or draw what the caterpillar ate each day.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Spinner Book - University
AD460L

 

Pre K-K

This book is about how a caterpillar forms into a butterfly.  I would use this story for a science lesson on the life cycle.  The students would be able to see the way that butterflies form.  I would also use this for art.  The students could create their own caterpillars out of foam balls and pipe cleaners.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is about a caterpillar's journey through his life from being born to turning into a butterfly. I would read this book to my students to teach health awareness. In the book, the caterpillar eats good foods and feels good and then he eats bad foods and feels sick. I would use that to teach about what foods are good to eat and which ones to avoid. I would also use this book for a lesson about the life cycle of a butterfly.

This book is a fun way to help teach the life cycle of a butterfly and a great way for math practice in lower grades. The book starts off the the caterpillar hatching from the egg and eating all kinds of foods. The caterpillar then makes his cocoon, where he eventually emerges as a beautiful butterfly. I would use this book in my class as a way to review math and for science lessons on butterflies.

This is a classic book that I remember reading when I was in Elementary school! It shows the life cycle of this caterpillar; showing how it eats and eats until he forms a cocoon and transforms into a beautiful butterfly! The illustrations in this book make it a must read! 

 

I would use this book in 1st-3rd grade. I think it would be a useful science lesson showing the life cycle of a particular kind of animal. You could also use this book to teach the days of the week! It could end up being a fun craft where you let the students decide what the caterpillar will eat on what day of the week!
