Act silly and walk across a room like a specific animal! This collaborative group activity allows children to see the world from a new perspective, which can spark creativity.
|Hints for uses in your library||Use complex language with children. During story times, use unfamiliar words to describe the setting of the book or what the character is doing, eating, etc. For this activity, add a descriptive adjective to each animal, such as clumsy, serious, or busy. For example, a clumsy crab. Try to match both the physical animal and its personality as you act it out.|
