This is a fun activity for kids to learn about animals. Have you ever noticed how different animals move? Frogs leap, spiders scuttle and cats prowl around like they own the place. Us humans usually tend to walk, but if we put our minds to it, we can move like lots of other animals.
Give it a go yourself by finding a safe place outdoors to practice with friends.
- Think about how different animals get around, can you see any that you might imitate?
- How about you try doing some animal walk exercises.
- What about climbing a tree like a squirrel or racing around like a puppy.
- Then, once you’ve had time to perfect your moves, you could hold an animal race! A special thanks to The Wild Network for this activity.
