(Stomp feet.)

How does a swallow fly? Zoom, zoom, zoom.

(Hold arms out like bird wings.)

How does a big dog bark? Bow, wow, wow.

(Bark like a dog.)

How do mosquitoes bite? Ow, ow, ow!

(Hold arm like it’s hurting.)

How does a bear sit down? Plop, plop, plop.

(Slowly plop onto the floor or a chair.)

How does a horse trot by? Clop, clop, clop.

(Lift feet up and down.)

How does a milk cow call? Moo, moo, moo.

(Moo like a cow.)

How does a night owl hoot? Who, who, who.

(Hoot like an owl.)

How does a lion sound? Roar, roar, roar!

(Roar like a lion.)

How much do plump pigs eat? More, more, more!

Are you grateful for animal friends? Yes, yes, yes.

(Nod head.)

We thank their Creator—His name we bless.

(Put hands together as if to pray.)
