We made these life cycles for our name tags for our lockers:
We drew the leaf and then put a small pompom for the egg. We picked two different colored larger pompoms for the caterpillar.
When we did this, I had the children wait to write "caterpillar" until after they glued down the pompoms. I wasn't sure how much space it would take.
Later, we made these TLC art caterpillars. I gave them a bunch of choices of colors, but they had to pick two. I gave them a red head.
Later, I hung them all up on the bulletin board above our lockers.
Here is a close-up of the white paper under our TLC Art caterpillars.
We made these from Pixie in the lab.
