Reaching, crouching, crawling, running
1. Read the 'Exploring Outdoors' action rhyme and with the toddlers act out each instruction.
2. Stop after each line to give the toddlers time to perform the action.
Exploring Outdoors Poem:
Reach high to touch the sky (reach up)
Crouch down low to watch grass grow (crouch down)
Crawl around to feel the ground (crawl and touch)
Run so fast across the grass (run)
Look for planes, but watch for rain! (lie down on the grass and gaze into the sky).
