Metamorphosis of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"

Process

 

Task #1: Each team will read "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." A team member will take notes on the foods the caterpillar ate; another team member will take notes to determine questions the team will pose in their recreated version of the story.

 

Task #2: While visiting the web links, determine the life cycle of a caterpillar. Compare and contrast the process of the life cycle of a caterpillar/butterfly to other animals/organism. Analyze these life cycles and make sure your team adds this information to your recreated books.
