1st GRADE--Eric Carle Caterpillars

The first grade students learned about the artist Eric
Carle. They learned that he is both an author and
an illustrator. We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar
And looked at how he created his own paper using
different textures. The students learned that texture
is the way something feels and they were able to
create their own paper using a variety of colors and
texture plates. Then they added more texture using
paint and sponges. After their paper was complete
they traced and cut out their circles to create their
very own Hungry Caterpillar!
