The teacher models various "animal walks for the students to imitate.
Frog. Jump forward in the squatting position, using the hands to touch the floor to steady the body.
Duck. Waddle forward in the squatting position, with hands tucked under arms to make wings.
Elephant. Stand and bend forward at the waist until your back is parallel to the floor. Clasp your hands together and sway them side to side while taking giant slow steps.
Bear. Start on hands and knees then straighten legs so only hands and feet touch the floor. Slowly walk forward keeping knees straight.
Seal. Lie flat on the floor on the tummy. Extend arms so elbows are straight. Drag the lower body forward without help from legs.
Each student will get on their hands and knees on the floor, "like a puppy" with weight equally distributed on all fours. The students will point one arm forward, and raise the opposite leg straight behind them. They will try to maintain this position to a count of five. Then they will switch sides.
The students stand up, bend over at the waist, and hang limp "like a rag doll." They let their arms and hands hang loosely down toward the floor. They slowly inhale as they straighten up to stand tall, raising both arms over their heads. They exhale as they bend forward again into the rag doll position, hang loosely, and then slowly stand.
