Objectives

Students use their power of hearing to determine animal sounds.

Procedures

  1. Say, "I went to the zoo and I heard this sound _____." (For example, growl like a lion or squawk like a parrot.)

  2. Then say, "I turned around and saw a _____."

  3. Ask students to guess what animal you saw.

  4. Continue playing, making new animal sounds.

  5. After a few rounds, ask student volunteers to lead the game.

  6. A variation of this game is to change the location (try sounds in the country; in the city; in the forest; at school).
