Very Hungry Caterpillar Day

I absolutely love the book, The very Hungry caterpillar by Eric Carle! When I opened my email the other day and saw that March 20 was Very Hungry Caterpillar Day, I got very excited and so did my students!

We did a lot of awesome activities from some Hungry Caterpillar units by Robynn Dr and Kidsrcute.

The kids made hungry caterpillar hats. These are made out of a small paper plate they colored red, yellow paper for eyes, two large tongue depressors colored purple, green paper for the nose and a green crayon to color inside the eyes. They then colored a sentence strip green. They were hot glued together and voila a hat.

Here is their hat!

They had a special attendance for today. They all had their own hungry caterpillar and they had to drag it into the chrysalis. This is on the smart board.

They made pictures by tearing construction paper with their hands. These came out so cute!! here are just a few of them!

We made a large caterpillar to write the beginning middle and end of the story in. we are talking about the difference between fiction and nonfiction and discussed this was one of the differences.
I will post a picture when we have completed it!

Here is a web quest, I created for Eric Carle and a link to watch Eric carle read his book The Very Hungry Caterpillar!  Please visit and enjoy!
