This fun little song is sure to be a hit with your students!
I use this during my dynamic unit. This file is helpful for discussing a safari, learning the safari song, practicing with loud and soft, practicing steady beat, reviewing terms piano and forte, and introducing/practicing crescendos. There is also a lyrics page, a lead sheet, and a very simple drum activity included.
Students will discuss the many animals they may see on a safari (visuals included), practice singing the song softly so they don't scare the animals, and sing LOUD like a lion's ROAR! They will then also sing softly on the small words and sing louder as the words get bigger, which leads students into learning about the crescendo.
I define a crescendo as "gradually get louder" but I am happy to alter it for any wording you like to use specifically in your classroom.
