  Nocturnal Animals - All About
a great site for more information!










Use this song at Halloween, or when you are studying nocturnal animals. Hold up a picture of each, or use puppets if you have them.

Other ideas: cut out felt animals and pass them out to the children. Have one child at a time put them on the board as you sing about the animal. Or put stuffed animals or small plastic animals in a cloth bag or box, and pass it around the circle. Each time you sing a verse, a child can reach into the bag and take one out. Donít limit yourself to the animals in this song, especially for older children .Check out a book from the library on nocturnal animals Ė there are many most of us havenít even heard of!

On a moonlit night when the stars come out
There are nocturnal animals all about

1. Whoo, whoo, what do I see 
(make circles with fingers, hold up to eyes)
A wise old owl looking at me

2. Meow, meow, what do I see
A big black cat is looking at me

3. Eee, eee, eee, what do I see
A little bat just looking at me

4. Ribit, ribit, what do I see
A big green tree frog looking at me

5. Squeak, squeak, squeak, what do I see
A garden dormouse looking at me
