Crab Walk

For this traditional activity, we practiced walking like crabs! To begin with, we read the book House for Hermit Crab, by Eric Carle. Following this, we had a very interesting discussion about hermit crab homes. For instance, students learned that these crabs find shells that they use as their “houses”.

Because of this, it makes walking difficult. To understand the plight of the crab in the story, we talked about what the word “awkward” means and how it applies to the character in the story.

Following this, we practiced doing our own version of the crab walk! To begin with, students were instructed to sit with their hands on the floor with their knees bent. Following this, they were directed to push their bodies toward the ceiling. Finally, everyone giggled as they attempted to race their friends around the room!
