Play Animal Exercises | Activities |

Here's a fun activity if you're doing something about animals in homeschool, or even if you aren't: Play Animal Exercises | Activities |
We've done something similar to this for years when playing or doing P.E. outside. I incorporate whatever we're learning into the obstacle course we're doing, in the verbal directions I provide. For instance, bark like a "d" O G (spelling it) as you skip 4 times to the swing.
Or "Move like a monkey" to the T R E E."
It's a blast for all of us!
