3. Get children to order each food items from smallest to biggest or vice versa. You can adjust the level of difficulty by letting children to sort from a group of three items and increase the number of items to make it more challenging.
4. There are pictures of caterpillars of different lengths on the last page. You can use this printable to let the children order the caterpillars from the shortest to the longest.
