The Very Hungry Caterpillar Math

Provide cut outs of the food that the Very Hungry Caterpillar ate giving the children the same number of each item.
Ask the children questions about the food.
  • How many pieces of food did the caterpillar eat through?
  • How many pieces of fruit did he eat?
  • How many oranges?
  • How many things were not fruit?
  • How many healthy choices did he make?
  • How many unhealthy choices did he make?
  • How many days from when he hatched till he turned into a butterfly? 

It is easy to incorporate a discussion about healthy choices as well as the days of the week.
