How does a caterpillar move?

Is this how you have visualized it?

This GIF is perfect for studying caterpillars and how their muscles move. Be  inspired to invent a robot, climbing toy or shoes.

If you like more inspiration about ways to use animals and plants to get ideas check out my stores at TpT. Or type in “biomimicy” in the search box  there are several blog posts and ideas on this site.

Biomimicry is an exciting way to teach children to focus on doing things and inventing things. At the same time they learn about animals and plants but the focus is on making a think dive and study the natural world with the aim of discovering how animals and plants solve problems. This approach makes it more fun to learn about animals and plants and it also teaches a child to use different approach to thinking. assessing risks and opportunities as well as taking crittery steps and lat jumping to get new ideas.
