Thumbs Up


Using hand gestures and hand signals is another way to communicate. Many people who are deaf, use sign language to converse with their family and friends. In the U.S. they use something called "American Sign Language." Deaf means a person who is unable to hear. How does it work? Simply by using your hands and facial expressions, in order to convey your "speaking" message. We can make an awesome hand gesture right now by doing this:

 Make a closed fist,
and extend your thumb upward.

And there you have it! This gesture is what you do when you like something. You're giving your approval. So towners, if you like Aniimal Town, please give us a Thumbs-Up gesture!
