Can you walk like a careful crocodile? Twist like a wild monkey? or walk backwards like a crab?
This teaching resource provides your students with a unique opportunity in movement in the classroom, at recess or in gym class. 

This is more than a “brain break”...
students listen to and engage in poetry and rhyme as they learn the movement of these animal characters.

Display these posters in your classroom for colorful and inviting decor and refer to them often to provide movement for your students.
Also, make your “brain break” circles and keep them on your desk to use whenever you need to move around a bit.
Physical Education Teachers :   Set up your Mother Nature’s Adventure Trail indoors or out. These can easily become your parcours for fitness. Ideal for PreK- 1.

Improve students' listening skills and fitness and at the same time
engage them in poetry and reading.

movement activities for small childrenThere are a total of 15 posters ready to download and print. Each poster measures 8.5" x 11" and shows a bird or an animal. The title names the movement and the poem describes how to do it. 
It's fun! It's educational! It's fitness!
Make a colorful bulletin board and refer to it often for movement activities. You can also make a 'brain break' jar with the included circle sticks. 

Mother Nature's Fitness Adventure was created by
Dr. Tom Quimby, Ed.D. Adventure and Physical Education. This is a unique curriculum for movement for small children. It provides an opportunity for fitness and fun and is proven to be effective in teaching basic movement skills for balance, agility, strength and endurance with repetition. Mother Nature's Fitness Adventure can be set up as a parcours in a recreational park, in a school gym as fitness stations, in the classroom for ready and accessible movement activities, and as brain breaks when children need movement.  The teacher's ability to recite the poem with a fun and enthusiastic expectation of the movement to follow will help enhance the spontaneity of the children's experience.
