The Very Hungry Caterpillar Theme: Free Graph Worksheets

Download these free graph worksheets for your kindergarten kids to practice creating bar graph from given data.

This free set includes two different worksheets that you can choose from. You children get to practice to read from graph and compare the results such as finding out which food the caterpillar ate the most or the least, how many, etc.

These worksheets are perfect as revision after you have created a picture graph with the kids from the story using the free food picture printable that I have created.

I created two worksheets because I let the children work in a pair, each doing a different worksheet. After they are done, they can both compare their graph and talk about what is the same or different. It is a great way to help your children not only practice to create and read from a graph but also reinforce their thinking and observational skills.â€‹

Another option that you can do is let the children compare the graphs on the worksheets with the 'real' graph based on the book. Talk about which food are missing, which food items have the same number, etc.
