Make Your Own Caterpillar
Make Your Own Caterpillar to find out why caterpillars look so different. Read carefully, and think about your choices so you make a caterpillar that can survive. After you've made three caterpillars, learn why your choices were helpful to the caterpillar, or not!
After you finish making caterpillars, go to the site Caterpillars.unr.edu to see pictures of real caterpillars that live in Louisiana. I'll be searching for these little guys in just a few days! :) Decide which caterpillar you like the best and then write me a comment. Be sure to tell me the scientific and common name of your caterpillar, what it eats (its "host" plant), and why you like it best.
If you have time, draw a large real-looking picture of your caterpillar in your notebook.
Have fun learning! Mrs. Armstrong
