Not all of the food that was in the story is on the Coding board. You can move the caterpillar to check your code. Remember you cannot go straight over any of the objects except to land on it if it is the correct choice. Remember to do a new line of code for each item of food. Your goal is to reach the butterfly. 1. Click on add 2. Click on instructions 3. Click on link and listen to the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' 3.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This example of coding scaffolds students to use a standardised format of Start, f, b, L, R, End. They need to write a new line of code for each item of food. They can use the caterpillar to test their code. They have to go around objects and not go over them unless they land on it.
