The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle, tells the charming story of a caterpillar who (literally) eats his way through the book and all of the food items he can find. Small children love the amazing artwork and the humorous way Eric Carle tells his tale.

The following ideas are excerpted from Children's Book Activities Kit by Elizabeth C. Stull.

Please note: The butterfly actually sheds its final skin to reveal a pupa with an outer skin that hardens to form a chrysalis. The chrysalis, not a cocoon, is what protects and hides the transformation to a butterfly. Cocoons are fascinating to children, and since Carle refers to a cocoon in the book, your students will enjoy exploring them further.
