The EFL Playhouse: A Resource for ESL/EFL Teachers of Young Learners

The Elephant

The elephant walks
Like this and like that;
(Get down on all fours and walk back and forth.)

He's very tall,
(Stand and stretch arms up.)
And he's very fat.
(Stretch arms out to sides.)

He has no fingers,
(Hold hands up, making fists to hide fingers.)
But he does have toes,
(Reach down and touch toes.)

And, goodness gracious,
What a nose!
(Grab nose between fingers and thumb of left hand; insert right arm through loop to form elephant's trunk.)
