Based on Standard 6–Improvising for K-1st grade music. Use the Shel Silverstein poem, "Boa Constrictor," in this activity to encourage students to listen and improvise through movement what is happening in this hilarious poem.
Your students will beg for this activity over and over. Your room will be filled with giggles and peals of laughter each time you do this fun activity.
You can find a recording of this on iTunes if you do not have access to it in the old MacMillan, Share the Music, series. Students pretend to be snakes as they "gobble up" their partner.
