  • Divide the children into two groups. Children select body percussion (e.g. slapping knees) or instruments. One group plays the rhythm (short and long sounds that fit over an underlying beat) of the verses and the other group plays the beat (the steady pulse) of the chorus.


  • Support your weight - teacher specifies what 2 body parts are allowed on the floor e.g. hand and foot. The students are challenged to support their weight. This activity can be done individually, in pairs or groups.
