Hungry Caterpillar Activities: Learn the Life Cycle!

 
One educational lesson often taught in conjunction with The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the cycle that the caterpillar undergoes to become a butterfly. Reinforce this important biology with an original caterpillar to butterfly activity, and this will be one fun lesson that even youngsters will never forget!

Instructions

 
  1. Print the PATTERN of the 4 stages of the life cycle. Color the pictures and then cut out.  
  2. Glue each picture onto a Pocket Card.
  3. Attach one side of the Self-Adhesive Hook and Loop Coins to the back of each of the 4 Pocket Cards. Attach the other side of the Hook and Loop to the Mighty Bright Tag background (which will be the playing board) in a straight row, as shown in picture.
  4. How to play the Very Hungry Caterpillar activity: Have children detach cards from playing board, and mix up their order. The goal is to replace all cards to their proper places, according to the life cycle of a caterpillar.
Variations:
-Older children can play with a partner; they can have a race to see who can get all the cards correctly on the board first.
-For children who are old enough to write numbers, have them write numbers one through 4 on the playing board, above the pocket cards.
