  • Think about...
    What sound did each animal make with its voice?
    What sound did each animal make when the did not use their voices?
    What animal was silent? Do you know why?
    What did the animals do on the seventh day?
    What was the new sound on the seventh day?

    Discuss this with a member of your family 
  • Favourite animal
    What is your favourite animal? Can you make the same sound?
  • Play a game
    Play the game Simon Says using 'Walk like an elephant', 'Hoot like an owl', 'Roar like a lion'... can you make any more up yourself?
