If your children love zoo animals you can also use a preschool zoo theme lesson for them to learn about different animals.
Preschoolers and kindergarten children learn can learn a lot about animals from having family pets, local zoos and from television shows which deal with different types of domestic animals and wildlife that they may see and learn about in their natural habitat etc. When starting your animal theme lesson plans you want to make things fun.
Talk about different types of common animals: Circle time is a good time for you to read a book related to different animals or to read books and stories on specific animals if that is how you are building your theme idea.
You can take this time to show different pictures of the different animals that you are talking about with the kids.
You can have the children do some creative movement activities and have them move around the classroom or outside as their favorite animal would move. Let the children pretend to be their favorite animal as they run, jump, crouch, crawl etc.
This is a great way for children to express themselves and to get some physical activity in.
You can purchase some fun animal masks or make some simple animal masks as a fun art activity for the kids that they can use.
Questions You May Ask the Children: You can also use this opportunity to ask the children different questions Talk about where each different animal lives Talk about what each animal eats Talk about what each animal looks like What sounds does each animal make? Simple Animal Lesson Plan Ideas: Dog eats dog food, chews bones, plays fetch, barks, drinks water, likes to dig in the yard, likes to play Horse eats hay, carrots, apples, it gallops, neighs, drinks water Chipmunk eats nuts, stores nuts in cheeks, very fast runners, squeak, drinks water You will find the animal theme to be an idea that children love and one that will come pretty naturally to the children and they will do a lot of the talking and exploring.
