Children get to use their imagination to move like their favorite animals, bringing awareness to different body parts and exploring how it feels to move like those animals.
Using the sense of sight, children will purposefully observe an object and bring awareness to what is happening. This activity helps young children slow down and focus their attention on a visual object; it also increases their language as they describe what they see and feel.
