Follow that Turtle!- Prior to the activity make a red stop sign with the letters “STOP” on it. Either go outside and draw a big circle with chalk or use a rope to make a large circle inside. Pretend that the circle is the pond and that you are turtles. Give directions like follow me around the pond, inside the pond and outside the pond. When you hold up the “STOP” sign have everyone stop. Talk about how the pond is round like a circle and about what the stop sign means.
Animal Charades!-Take turns acting like a real turtle or a turtle like Franklin and have your child guess if you’re real or pretend. If this is too hard, just pretend to be real turtles and crawl around and eat or swim and then later pretend to do something like Franklin does.
