Very Hungry Caterpillar Collaborative Class Project

As part of our bug unit, we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and worked on a collaborative class project.

Working in pairs, students painted glue onto a pre-cut oval.

They placed tissue paper squares onto the glue, overlapping the pieces as they went.

These ovals made up the caterpillar's body.

A red circle with red tissue paper was used for its head.

Two longer strips & blue tissue paper were used as the antennae.
