Caterpillar Garden Poem for Kids

As you teach the kids about flowers and plants, you can talk to them about what they can find in a garden.

Create a graphic organizer recording all of their responses to “What belongs in a garden?”.  Most likely, one of the kids will mention butterflies. 

Once they mention butterflies, this is your perfect opportunity to integrate lessons about caterpillars and butterflies.

To bridge your garden activities and butterfly life cycle activities, use this free Caterpillar Garden poem.

From descriptive language to position words and counting, this poem is great for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade standards.
