Description of Idea
Most of these movements will follow along with the lyrics. We have made small adjustments to fit in the skill level of a middle school student. Use video below to help your students learn how to do the dance.
Performers can add their own movements to some of the sequences in the dance.
Teachers may assess the teachers teaching the dance to the class with a rubric or performers could also be assessed with a rubric.
Adaptations for Students with Disabilities
Adaptations for children in wheelchairs: Almost all of the movements can be done with arms only or by moving the wheelchair in different directions. Encourage the children to try and move with the words of the song and have fun with the movements. Children can add their own creativity at various points in the dance.
