Story Map Picture Book
The lesson will be based on the book titled “The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle.
The story is set in nature or outside in a field with some leafy plants. It is at night, under the moonlight.
The story starts with an egg laying on a green leaf. It is night, and there is moonlight.
[insert a picture of a caterpillar egg on a green leaf at night and a shining moon].
On Sunday morning, the Sun rises. The egg hatches into a very hungry and tiny caterpillar. The caterpillar starts to move around, looking for something to eat because it is hungry.

The little hungry and green caterpillar eats one apple on Monday. However, he is still hungry. Since he was not satisfied, he continued looking for more food.

The caterpillar eats through two pears. However, he is also not full and keeps moving to look for more food.

The green caterpillar eats three plums, but they do not satisfy him. He keeps looking for more food.

He eats four strawberries and continues to look for more food since he is still hungry.

He eats five oranges and still looks for more food.

He eats one piece of ice cream cone, cheese, and salami. He also eats a lollipop, one sausage, and watermelon. Eating too much made the caterpillar's stomach hurt.

The caterpillar ate through a green leaf and started feeling better. He had grown into a fat and big caterpillar and was satisfied. The caterpillar built a cocoon around himself. He stayed in the cocoon for two weeks where he turned into a beautiful butterfly.
