  1. The Hungry Caterpillar:

    An life Cycle is a process, where an caterpillar egg transform in to an beautiful butterfly. You have to go through many stages to become an butterfly.

    I think it take between 7 to 10 days, because the caterpillar has eaten a lot food and the in turns into a cocoon, the process allow the food to process and the caterpillar is turning into a butterfly and it will then become a butterfly.

    The End

  4. The life cycle of the caterpillar is the journey that he went on to become a butterfly. First the caterpillar hatched his way out of the egg, then he ate and ate and ate and ate until he became a big fat caterpillar. Next he made a cocoon and he slept in there for two weeks. Finally he became a beautiful multi coloured butterfly.
