How to use the video in class:
Listen to Dream English Teaching Tips Podcast about this video. Click here!
Start by pre-teaching the vocabulary in the video: kangaroo, monkey, zebra, giraffe, and bear. Also teach the phrases, “Where are you?” and ” I see a monkey.” You can show flashcards with the animals and have your students repeat after you. Then, watch the video and sing the song with your students!
Mini Lesson about Wild Animals
Depending on the level of your students, you can do a few things with the mini lesson. Watch one time, the mini lesson is right after the song in the video. For younger students, have them just watch and listen. For older students, after watching ask the following questions:
- What animal can jump? (answer: kangaroo)
- What animal can swing from tree to tree? (answer: monkey)
- What animal has black and white stripes? (answer: zebra)
- What animal has a long neck? (answer: giraffe)
- What animal is a bit scary and says roar? (answer: bear)
These are just some ideas to get you started. As always, be sure to come up with your great ideas! Leave a comment on Facebook or Dream English Kids YouTube and let us know what you think about the video! Happy Teaching!
