"Can't Catch Me, I'm the Gingerbread Man" is a general music lesson with vocal exploration of high/low sounds, composition, some rhythm, and instrument accompaniment.
Story of the Gingerbread Man is included with words highlighted in boomwhacker colors. I did this story with boomwhackers in K-3 music.
This could be grouped with a larger fairy tale unit, to be uploaded soon.
This could take one 30 minute lesson or longer depending on your procedures or speed of students in the activity.
Prep time: Teacher will need to read instructions and story and prepare instruments/boomwhackers.
Students loved this activity and constantly asked to come back to it and save the gingerbread man again!
