This quiz contains 10 comprehensive multiple choice questions about the story "I'm a Caterpillar." This quiz will be used as a pre- and post- assessment.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What sounds does the caterpillar make when he eats green leaves?

    • A.

      Yum. Yum.

    • B.

      Munch. Crunch.

    • C.

      Gross. Gross

    Correct Answer
    B. Munch. Crunch.
    Explanation
    The caterpillar makes the sounds "Munch" and "Crunch" when it eats green leaves. This suggests that the caterpillar is enjoying its meal and is actively chewing and breaking down the leaves. The sounds "Yum" and "Gross" do not accurately describe the sounds made by a caterpillar while eating leaves.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Where does the caterpillar hang from?

    • A.

      A rope.

    • B.

      A line.

    • C.

      A stem.

    Correct Answer
    C. A stem.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A stem. Caterpillars typically hang from a stem when they are forming a chrysalis or preparing to molt. They attach themselves to the stem using silk threads and hang upside down, allowing them to undergo the necessary transformation into a butterfly or moth. Hanging from a stem provides stability and protection during this vulnerable stage of their life cycle.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What happens to the caterpillar next?

    • A.

      He runs away.

    • B.

      He eats and is full.

    • C.

      His skin splits and he becomes a pupa.

    Correct Answer
    C. His skin splits and he becomes a pupa.
    Explanation
    After the caterpillar eats and is full, its skin splits and it undergoes a process called molting. During this process, the caterpillar sheds its old skin and reveals a new, larger skin underneath. Once the old skin is shed, the caterpillar enters the pupa stage of its life cycle. In this stage, it forms a protective casing around itself called a chrysalis. Inside the chrysalis, the caterpillar undergoes a remarkable transformation, turning into a butterfly or moth. Therefore, the correct answer is that the caterpillar's skin splits and it becomes a pupa.

    What happens to the caterpillar after he turns in to a pupa?

    • A.

      He cries.

    • B.

      He is afraid.

    • C.

      He turns into a chrysalis.

    Correct Answer
    C. He turns into a chrysalis.
    Explanation
    After the caterpillar turns into a pupa, it undergoes a process called metamorphosis. During this time, the caterpillar's body undergoes significant changes and transforms into a chrysalis. Inside the chrysalis, the caterpillar's tissues break down and reorganize to form the body of an adult butterfly or moth. This transformation allows the caterpillar to eventually emerge as a fully developed and winged adult insect.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    After he is a chrysalis, what does he turn into?

    • A.

      Butterfly

    • B.

      Pupa

    • C.

      Bee

    Correct Answer
    A. Butterfly
    Explanation
    After being a chrysalis, the organism undergoes metamorphosis and transforms into a butterfly.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    After his wings dry, what does the butterfly do?

    • A.

      He flys away.

    • B.

      He begins to dance.

    • C.

      He sings.

    Correct Answer
    A. He flys away.
    Explanation
    After his wings dry, the butterfly flies away. This is because butterflies have to wait for their wings to dry and harden before they can fly. Once their wings are fully developed, they are able to take flight and explore their surroundings. Dancing and singing are not activities typically associated with butterflies, so the most logical option is that they fly away.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What does the butterfly do after it starts to fly?

    • A.

      It visits flowers and drinks nectar.

    • B.

      It flys away.

    • C.

      It goes to sleep.

    Correct Answer
    A. It visits flowers and drinks nectar.
    Explanation
    After the butterfly starts to fly, it engages in the behavior of visiting flowers and drinking nectar. This is a common behavior among butterflies as they rely on nectar as a source of food and energy. By visiting flowers, they not only obtain nourishment but also assist in pollination, aiding in the reproduction of plants. Therefore, visiting flowers and drinking nectar is an essential activity for butterflies after they begin flying.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Why aren't butterflies afraid of birds?

    • A.

      The butterflies think the birds can't see them.

    • B.

      The birds think a butterfly is too small.

    • C.

      The birds know the butterflies taste awful.

    Correct Answer
    C. The birds know the butterflies taste awful.
    Explanation
    Butterflies are not afraid of birds because the birds know that butterflies taste awful. This suggests that butterflies have a defense mechanism that makes them unappetizing or even toxic to birds, which deters the birds from preying on them. This knowledge allows butterflies to feel less threatened by birds, as they are aware that they are not a desirable food source for them.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    After finding a mate, what does the butterfly do?

    • A.

      It lays eggs.

    • B.

      It drinks nectar.

    • C.

      It jumps.

    Correct Answer
    A. It lays eggs.
    Explanation
    After finding a mate, the butterfly lays eggs. This is a crucial step in the butterfly's life cycle as it ensures the continuation of its species. The female butterfly will typically search for suitable plants to lay her eggs on, as these plants will provide food for the caterpillars once they hatch. Laying eggs is an essential reproductive behavior for butterflies.

    Correct Answer
    B. Butterfly
