Take your students on a jungle adventure right in your own classroom! A great way to get wiggles out, stretch their bodies, practice their listening, and use their creative imagination!
You can take this basic script and make it as creative as your own mind will let you!
I usually start my students off sitting to pack up their "backpacks" with imaginary cameras, flashlights, snacks, water, maps, and more. Then, we stand up to "tie our shoes" (or touch your toes) along with putting on our "hat".
Depending on the grade level and attention span, you can add in additional animals and adventures (like a river, a snake, an alligator, monkeys/gorillas, ants, sitting down to read your map, and more).
