Video Description:

Come along with Kem as he embarks on the trip of a lifetime - an African safari! He'll learn to count by fives as he gets into precarious situations with wild animals. At the end, Kem get a little too close to the hippos and get chased down the stream! Watch to find out Kem's fate and learn Skip Counting by 5 with him!

Skip Counting by 5 in the Serengheti Song Lyrics:

Verses:
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60
...Wildebeest on the Serengeti
...Sharks swimming in the sea
...Gorillas by the trees
...Giraffes eating the leaves
...Hippos on a Safari

Chorus:
Alive, in the wild they thrive,
hanging out in groups of 5.
