The Circus Acrobats
What to do:
- At circle time or even outdoors on a grassy area, tell children that today they are going to be circus acrobats and use their bodies to make different shapes.
- Hold up a card. Ask, “What shape is this?” “Can you make this shape with your body?”
- Recognize the many ways that children use their bodies to make the shapes. If possible, do this activity in a room with large mirrors so the children can see their own bodies.
- A variation might be to have children pick a partner and make shapes together. Have children make the shapes while laying on the floor.
