Demonstrate animal movements at low, moderate, and vigorous intensity levels.
Move many times and many ways each day to power your brain!
Say: Let’s do some animal movements!
Animals and people move in many different ways and at many different speeds. When you move slowly, like a cat, your heart rate may not be as fast as it is after running, but you are improving your flexibility and balance.
When you move at a medium (moderate) level, like a rabbit, you strengthen your muscles, including your heart muscle! When you move fast (at a vigorous level), like a gazelle running, you heart beats faster making your body stronger and healthier!
The number one thing you need to know is that your body benefits from all kinds of movement. Move many times and many ways each day!
Today we are going to pretend to visit different animal habitats and explore slow, medium, and fast (low, moderate, and vigorous) animal movements.
Challenge yourself to boost your brain power with medium to fast (moderate to vigorous) movements throughout the day.
