This song was created for a Physical Therapist working with students on developmental gross motor skills required for walking. The song progresses through a hierarchy of gross motor movements paired with an animal providing fun opportunities for gross motor skill practice. This song would also work well as a PE activity for young children or in a music class to reinforce moving in time with a steady beat.
The instrumental track allows for lyric modification- either by repeating a verse to develop skill mastery or creating new animals/movements and inspiring creativity.
