Walking In The Zoo
Song for Teaching Animal Noises
Prue Whoo: Australian Singer/Songwriter


This song is available on Prue Whoo's Bug and Animal Tunes

 

CHORUS:
We’ll go walking in the zoo just me and you
Would you like to meet some animals like I do
We’ll go walking in the zoo and if we dare
We might see some interesting animals inside there

Walk tall, walk tall, walking tall, it’s Mr Giraffe to you
He’s got long legs, giraffe legs and a little waggly tail too
Stretch up, stretch up, stretch right up
To eat from the highest tree
Long legs, giraffe legs, as gentle as you can be
Long legs, giraffe legs

CHORUS

Black and white the zebra stripe, as handsome as you can be
Run as fast as horses can, cause Zebra’s are the same you see
Gallop away off to play with their friends and family
Black and white the zebra stripe, as handsome as you can be
Black and white the zebra stripe, as handsome as you can be

CHORUS

Big old feet of Mr Elephant pounds the earth as he walks by
He’s got big wide ears and swaying trunk, this graceful gentle giant
Pounds the earth with his great big feet with a 1, 2, 3, 4 powerful beat
Hey there Mr Elephant, hey we think you’re really neat
Hey there Mr Elephant hey we think you’re really neat

CHORUS

We might see some interesting animals inside there

Lesson: Discuss the different types of animals one might find in the zoo.
What country do you think they have come from?
What do they eat?
How do they live?
Are they active? Where do they hide? How do they catch their food? Can they see at
night? Are they friendly to humans?

Action: Have the children walking around like they are at the zoo
Role play being a giraffe with big long legs and stretchy neck & little flicky tail
Play the part of being a zebra and galloping around the room
The children can stomp around with heavy feet and swing their arm for the elephant’s trunk and use their arms to signify the elephant’s big ears.
