Your tasks today are:

  1. Watch the video on how animals move.
  2. Think about the questions and talk to an adult about them.
  3. Look at the PowerPoint on how animals move and act them out!
  4. Complete the activity.

Animals move in different ways. Watch the video on how birds, mammals and insects move. Think about how many different types of movement there are. Can you make a list of them?

Let’s look at some examples.

What a Frog Needs to Make That Leap - The New York Times

A frog has strong, muscular legs that are perfectly designed for jumping.

Rabbit Hoping – Why Do Rabbits Hop? | Pets Mentor

A rabbit also has strong back legs that are perfectly designed for hopping.

Now think about how plants move. How do they compare to how animals move?

  1. What is different about how plants move?
  2. When we see branches swaying in the wind is the plant moving by itself?
  3. But what keeps plants in one place?
  4. How is it possible then for plants to spread and grow in other areas?

Here is a PowerPoint showing how different animals move. Read the slides and act out the animal’s movement – you could get your whole family involved!

Your task: Draw some animals/insects and label how they move. Which parts of their bodies help them to move?


If you have access to outdoor space or can get to a local park, see if you can find some plants, insects or animals and observe how they move. How is the way plants and animals move different? Make a list or draw some pictures of your findings!
