Objective: students use the body to tell a story.
Based on the book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle, this lesson has students working in partners and triads to create the objects and the caterpillar who systematically eats through each item.  Students sequence and retell the story as they transform in the playing of the character and setting .    The students identify the character, plot, conflict, setting and message of the story (part of the first grade objectives).   This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the First Grade Curriculum and can be used in Kindergarten.
