This double circle singing activity is fun for upper primary and early elementary aged students. Invite half the class to form a standing circle facing out with backs toward one another. Ask each of the remaining students to stand in front of one of the students who have just formed the circle. There should now be two circles; one facing out and one facing in. Partners will perform a pre-determined clapping pattern for most of the verse until they get to the part that says, "children on the inside please step to the right." Students forming the inside circle will step to the right and work with a new partner for the next verse. Verse two invites children "on the outside" to step to the right. The dance continues with each circle moving in alternate verses. Song Length: 1:49
This song is also available as part of the "Partners Clapping Hands Complete Song Package" for only $5.
