Line Caterpillars



There are so many different caterpillar lessons that teach everything from lines to counting to collage. They are all so fun. Of course, the natural tie in for this lesson is Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar which is a staple in the Kindergarten classroom.

The students determine how many segments they want their caterpillars to have and draw that many circles.


When we do the caterpillar head, we talk about what it needs: eyes, antennae, mouth, etc. Once the head is complete, students fill in the segments with different colors and different types of lines. They add legs then they then add ground or grass.
