Dramatic play and a song will reinforce what the kids have learned about foxes. The teacher will make a fox den in the back of the classroom. This can be a tent, blocks arranged in a corner of the room, or a den made with blankets. The children will put on a fox mask
and pretend to be foxes by going in and out of the den. The kids will hold the masks up to their face and become foxes traveling in and out of their den while they are singing the Ten Little Fox Song. The teacher will allow different students each day to sleep in the classroom den at naptime, until each person has had a turn.
