Walk Like the Animals

In this dance activity, your child will try to simulate the ways animals move.

Directions

In this dance activity, your child will try to simulate the ways animals move. Start with familiar animals¬ócat, dog, duck, and lizard, for example. Say, If you were a cat, how would you come towards me? Or, If you were a lizard, how would you move away from me? Avoid telling your child to move like a certain animal. Instead, allow him to sense and create the movements from within. Watch a show or visit a zoo or aquarium to see how animals move about in their natural environments. After your child has a chance to move like a particular animal, ask him to describe how he was moving.
