The Very Hungry Caterpillar is such a perfect book to include science in your ELA lesson! This book focuses on a hungry caterpillar that turns into a butterfly. This would be an awesome book to mix some science into your lesson and learn about caterpillars and butterflies. A teacher could use this book to look into these insects and possibly a sequencing lesson. For example, the class could go back and list what he ate on Monday, then on Tuesday, and so on. For the younger grades, they could practice sequencing with pictures of the food he ate. I believe this book would make a great read aloud with K-2nd grade.
