Today at St. Mary's we worked with the preschool students. This is my favorite age group to work with. They are so eager to learn and are open to new games. We started off by reading them a series of animal books in the classroom. While half of our group was reading to the kids the other half set up our activity in the gym. We played a variation of Zany Zoo. We put a bunch of poly spots in a circle and put a bunch of cards in the middle with animals on them. The object of the game was to have one person go into the middle and pick a card then the rest of the group would do that animal walk to a different poly spot. Then the person that picked the card would pick another person to go into the middle. I feel that this game was very age appropriate because the kids had a blast.
