How to teach: Use the poster (see above) to introduce the animal names and numbers. Practice clapping and counting. If you can show the video, you can also use that to introduce the vocabulary and dance. If you are teaching older kids you can use the board to write out that one kangaroo has no 's' and 2 kangaroos has an 's' sound. You may want to teach this to even younger students, using sounds only.

Students will pick up the vocabulary quickly, try using the poster and see if they can say everything like this " 1 kangaroo, 2 monkeys...:

Game idea: Fruit Basket is a popular game, and you can try something similar with the animal names instead of fruit. Read more about Fruit Basket on Wikipedia here. You can print out a few copies of the poster and make cut-outs to play this game.

Counting Fruit Song Lyrics:

I can clap, I can sing, I can do anything!
I can clap, I can sing, I can do anything!

1 kangaroo, 1 clap
2 monkeys, 2 claps
3 zebras, 3 claps

I can clap, I can sing, I can do anything!

4 elephants, 4 claps
5 lions, 5 claps

I can clap, I can sing, I can do anything!
I can clap, I can sing, I can do anything!
