Fuzzy Caterpillar Song & Activity

Do you want to make your own cuddly, fuzzy caterpillar? This lesson uses the nursery rhyme “Little Arabella Miller” as a prompt to learn more about the life cycle of caterpillars and butterflies. 

Here are the lyrics to “Little Arabella Miller”. 

(To the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”)

Little Arabella Miller
Had a fuzzy caterpillar.
First it climbed upon her mother,
Then upon her baby brother.
They said, ” Arabella Miller,
Put away your caterpillar!”

First, we will learn a bit about caterpillars, then we will make our own fuzzy little caterpillars to act out the parts of the song!
