Monkey Day

Movement Lesson
for Monkey Day

The students will participate in a game of "Monkey See, Monkey Do".


  • A wide, open space allowing for movement



  1. Instruct the students to play a game of "Monkey See, Monkey Do".  This will be similar to "Follow the Leader".

  2. Have the students take turns being the leader.  Whatever action the leader does, the other students must imitate.


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. For a variation on the above game, play it more like "Simon Says".  The leader will say "Monkey Says...." instead of "Simon Says".

  2. Call out various actions that monkeys may do, such as swinging from a tree or eating a banana.  Have the students act out the movements of these actions.

  3. Read the book Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina.  Give the students caps (pieces of felt), assign roles, and have them act out the story.
