Feeding Pail Toss

Have 3-4 pails on one side of a large floor area. You can tape pictures of different animals on the buckets. Have the children take turns tossing beanbags into the pails and naming the animals they are feeding.

Zoo Keeper May I

Have the children line up along one wall. Give one child at a time a direction to take steps like a certain animal (like "2 snake steps") Children should think about how that animal moves and then move in that way. The important thing is that they are moving their bodies with balance, not that they are saying "Zoo Keeper May I" so don't penalize them for that.
