Can you walk like a bug? How would you walk if you had six legs?
How do cows walk? They are so big!
How do frogs walk? Do they walk or jump?
Snakes don’t have legs? How do they get around? They slither!
What about horses? They gallop!
Do fish walk? No, they swim!
Show me how you can swim.
Do bees walk? No, they fly!
Show me how you can fly.
