"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" was my absolute favorite book as a young child. I loved the holes n the book pages and the colorful painted textures of the collage technique.
For this lesson with my Grade 2's, we didn't create painted collage papers, instead did simple illustrations of the book using Sharpie and watercolour. Students drew all their images on heavy white paper, painted them, let them dry and they cut them all out and arranged them on a new sheet of paper. Oh, and of course, used a single hole punch to create 'holes' in our food ;)
