Circus Animals

What to do:

  1. During circle time, choose one child to pick a movement activity:
  • Clap like a seal
  • Scratch like a monkey
  • Jump like a kangaroo
  • Roar like a lion, etc.

    2. The child then rolls the dice into the middle of the circle and the children do the movement the number of times indicated on the dice.
    3. As appropriate, use two dice and have the children add the numbers.

  • To make milk carton die, measure the bottom of a cardboard half gallon milk carton. Measure the same distance up the side of the carton and cut off. Repeat with another carton. Fit together to make a block. Cover with paper or contact paper. Add numerals or “dots” on sides for numbers.
