Crawling Caterpillars

Aimed at upper Key Stage Two, this resource investigates whether moth caterpillars move in a straight line when they seek a refuge. It links to the topic areas of all living things and habitats.

A short film shows the caterpillars moving and then children measure tracks they have made. Children use data provided on the caterpillar movement to analyse and interpret movement.

The teachers' notes provide an outline of the activities and background information on the large yellow underwing moth, which is one of the most common moths in the British Isles and can be found in many different habitats.
