Military: Action Activity

A Soldier May
Text and Actions by C.K. Emanuel

A soldier may march,
MARCH IN PLACE
A soldier may swim,
ARMS MAKE SWIMMING MOTIONS WITH ARMS, KICK TO THE SIDE
A soldier may climb,
MAKE FISTS, REACH ONE OVERHEAD THEN THE OTHER AS IF CLIMBING
A soldier may fly,
ARMS OUT TO SIDES LIKE PLANE
A soldier might jump
JUMP IN PLACE
And then whoosh goes their parachute
RAISE ARMS OVERHEAD, THEN SPREAD OUT TO SIDES
And gently down they fall.
FALL TO THE GROUND
A soldier may march.
MARCH IN PLACE
