Jungle Dance

We have been reading ” Giraffes Can’t Dance” this week,

I love this book, it has a great “moral”:

EVERYONE CAN DANCE, WHEN YOU FIND MUSIC THAT YOU LOVE!

Not only did we study jungle animals, but as all the animals dance to different types of music, we also looked at the waltz, cha-cha, tango etc.

If you don’t know it, the story is a great lesson in being different.

I found loads of ressources, including these, so we made our giraffes;

Then of course we held our own jungle dance;

All the animals were invited;

We ate jungle snacks like worms and crocodiles;

and we played lots of jungle games;

As you can see we played Pin the tail on the giraffe;

As well as “Guess the roar” – a blindfolded student had to listen and guess which classmate “roared”.

We also played my favourite classroom game; Sleeping Lions!

We all really enjoyed ourselves and learnt lots of fun things. (And of course the advantage of having animal masks is that our teacher could safely take and publish lots of photos of us;)
