Gathering Activity: We read stories about jungle animals and played with the Fisher Price ABC Zoo.
Circle Time: We read Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae. We sang songs about jungle animals and used plastic jungle animals to order them smallest to largest. We played a guessing game with the jungle animals. The children made the sound of the animal and everyone tried to guess which animal makes that sound.
Art Activity: Giraffe Paper Towel Roll Craft
We followed the directions located at the link above.
Snack: We ate animal crackers and bananas with spots (drawn on by a black sharpie to look like a giraffe). Giraffes in captivity eat bananas.
Playtime Activity: We wore animal masks and played with jungle animal puppets and held our own Jungle Dance to fun music including, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight. "
