45 years of being a Very Hungry Caterpillar

hungry caterpillarDid you know that The very Hungry Caterpillar is turning 45?  Yes, Eric Carl published this book 45 years ago!  This book is fun, colorful, perfect for little kids and for second language learners.  I have to say that all his books are very special to me.

I started my Spanish Spring unit studying the butterfly cycle.  And of course, I used a La Oruga Muy Hambrienta to help me!

Spring units that you can use the book for,

  • Butterfly Cycle  (El ciclo de la Mariposa).
  • Reviewing of counting and numbers (Contar en Español)
  • Fruits and Food (Frutas y Vegetales)
  • Colors  (Colores)
  • Improve your memoria with a memory vocabulary game!

I googled activities for the book and I found this very cool links
