Preview The Workshop

Crazy Caterpillars is a great session to do as you start talking about minibeasts, life cycles and new life in spring time. You can link in with the Hungry Caterpillar story and some outdoor nature hunts as the weather improves. You might even get some caterpillars to keep in your setting and release as butterflies!

We'll be exploring the life cycle of caterpillars as we build and count caterpillar stacks, observe a science experiment to talk about reactions and make symmetrical fluttering butterflies. 

"This workshop went so well with our life cycles topic and we all loved having a choice of different activities to try out. The children talked about it for days!"

What you get:

  • A Little STEAMers on-demand workshop to do any time that suits you 
  • Optional training video and information sheets for your staff to use before you get started. These can also double as part of their professional development
  • Preparation details with very simple resources to get your setting ready for the workshop
  • Exploration support for your staff with questions and ideas to help you support your children's learning
  • Observation Sheets 
  • Learning Journal Sheets
  • Bonus content including printable caterpillar heads and images to arrange for other animal life cycles

You'll need 45-60 minutes for the workshop but you could continue on with the activities at stations for a couple of days.

For £59* you can use the workshop with as many groups/classes as you like for a whole school term on your own schedule.

Please be aware that for this workshop you will need to source some simple materials in advance, some of which you'll already have in your setting and others like bicarbonate of soda and vinegar you'll be able to bring in or buy cheaply.
