Magic Zoo
WARM UP SECTION (Aim – to present body parts vocabulary): One of the actors is tired and we have to wake him/her up with some exercise. Kids stretch and move parts of their body to wake themselves up too. Incorporate the song “Head, shoulders, knees and toes…” which your kids may already know. ZOO SECTION: Once the tired actor is awake he/she suggests they do something (Let’s + verb/ Let’s + verb + object). Eventually they have the great idea to go to the zoo.. Let’s go to the zoo, and sing the song… “We’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo… etc.” Actors encourage the kids to sing along, aiming for them to sing the “zoo, zoo, zoo” part in chorus. A rope is brought out and children hold on to the rope while we all march around the space singing the “Zoo” song. Actors get worried: “Where is the zoo?” “Is it there?” “Can you see it?” “Is it here?” In the middle of the space there is a chair covered by a cloth. The kids sit down again. The actors uncover the cloth to reveal a box. Looking in the box they see something… “What can you see?” “It’s incredible” “What is it?” Actors use coloured materials to turn themselves into big animals. Afterwards they dress some kids up as animals too. In the box are parts of animals: an elephant’s trunk (nose); a parrot’s beak (mouth); a fish’s head;  a rabbit’s nose and teeth and ears. “I can see an elephant” A kid is brought out to be the elephant and dressed up with the trunk. “What colour is the elephant?” Coloured capes are brought out and the kids choose a colour for the elephant to be. The kid is dressed up with the cape of the chosen colour. Kids greet the elephant. “Hello, blue elephant.” Actors teach kids how to be elephants. Elephants have big ears (mime big ears) a long nose (mime a long nose), they have four legs (walk like elephants on four legs) The animals are given food. “We have a pear, an orange, an apple, etc.” “What food can we give the elephant?”  This process is repeated with three more animals: the rabbit, the fish and the parrot. To finish we say goodbye to the animals and sing the song again, at the end of which the actor’s say goodbye.
