Carnival of the Animals

The Kinders have been learning about French composer, Camille St. Saens and his brillant works from the Carnival of the Animals.  Today we listened to several of the recordings of the animals and acted out the parts.  We listened for the jokes that Camille hid in the pieces and identified instruments.  We watched the 1985 zoo visit video, hosted by Gary Burghoff with Ogen Nash's poetry.

Here is a Youtube clip of the 1976 classic hosted by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.
