Eye on UMSL: A 'very hungry' celebration: October 12, 2020

Preschool children at the University of Missouri–St. Louis Child Development Center performed a reenactment of the iconic children's book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" last Thursday as the center celebrated both National Campus Children's Centers Week and the 50th anniversary of author Eric Carle's beloved book. An earlier celebration of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," planned by UCDC teachers, had to be postponed last spring because of onset of the COVID-19 pademic. That made last week's celebration of both the book and the week more exciting. In addition to the re-enactment, children crafted Hungry Caterpillar puppets and crowns, played Caterpillar bingo and matching games, math and counting games, fine motor activities, outdoor activities, and even making Hungry Caterpillar fruit salads.
