The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle


This book was one of my favorites growing up. This book introduces the life cycle of a caterpillar. It goes through each phase of its life in an interesting way. This book is also interactive because each time it eats something another hole appears in the book. 


Leveling System:

Lexile AD460L 


Classroom Activity:

I would use this book in my classroom as an introduction to the life cycle of a caterpillar. We would use the K-W-L chart to tap into our prior knowledge of caterpillars. Once we gather our chart, we will read the book and review the life cycle by creating a chart. I will also be asking the students to record both our charts inside their Science Notebooks. We will also have a class caterpillar that we can document, in our Science Notebooks, what all we see daily and how it becomes a Butterfly.
