Hi dear friends, today I'm sharing something a little bit different.

As a few of you may know, I'm a preschool teacher. So I've teamed up with to give you this little creative activity idea for the book The Hungry Caterpillar.
Check out the site to find many more ideas :)

What fruits did the caterpillar eat and how many are left? In this activity, students will manipulate the fruits that the caterpillar ate to practice subtraction.

What You Need:
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar book by Eric Carle
  • Caterpillar, option to make with felt or draw it on paper
  • Fruits from the story, option to make with felt or draw them on paper
  • Paper
  • Crayons or markers
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Read The Very Hungry Caterpillar to the student. As you read the book, you can count the fruits the caterpillar eats.
  2. After reading the story, explain to the student that you will reenact the part of the story where the caterpillar eats the fruits.
  3. Begin by using the same fruits in the book to do the subtraction part of the activity.  
  4. Have the student first count how many of each fruit he has, and every time the caterpillar eats a fruit he needs to subtract the amount he has.
  5. When the student is done using the fruits from the book, you can give him an opportunity to get creative by drawing other fruits the caterpillar might eat that were not in the story.
  6. Have him draw a few of the fruits he comes up with in order to have various amounts to work with. You can also help him draw fruits so that there can be enough to be able to do the subtracting.
  7. When he is done drawing the fruits he can cut them out.  
  8. After cutting the fruits, you can have him start the activity again by counting and subtracting the fruits the caterpillar eats. The caterpillar does not have to eat all the fruits. For example, there can be 10 kiwis and the caterpillar only ate 4.      
  9. To conclude the activity, he can write down the amount of fruits he initially started with and the remaining amount he has.
