I'm sure we've all been to the zoo.
We're going to mimic animals from one back line to the other back line.

  • Elephant, very big steps.
  • Mouse - very small steps
  • Kangaroo - jumps with 2 legs at the same time
  • Frog - frog jumps
  • Spider - on all fours
  • Flamingo= on 1 leg, so hopping
  • All 1 ball and throw and catch.

In the meantime:

  • touch the ground with 2 hands.
  • Turn around your own axis.
  • tap the ground with 1 knee
  • Trainer stands in the middle of the circle with a newspaper.
  • The children sit on the floor in the circle.
  • One person calls out a name
  • This person has to hit the trainer.
  • He/she has to hit the trainer, but he/she does not want to be hit so he/she calls another name as soon as possible.

After a while, a child in the circle changes names.
