Very Hungry Caterpillar

Very Hungry Caterpillar Workshop


Students will create the stages of a butterfly's life. An ordinary sock is transformed from a caterpillar, into a chrysalis, and finally a butterfly.  This workshop works well as a companion to StoneLion performances Backyard Buggin' and "It's a Jungle Out There".
