Product Description
“Teach Kids About Ecuador – The Bottle-Balancing Bomba” is an engaging, participatory world cultures lesson for about Ecuador for kids that invites them to experience the Bomba del Chota, a dance that celebrates the South American confluence of African and Spanish cultures. Kids will meet the Ecuador, learn about importance of the mixing of African rhythms and Spanish melodies in the creation of Ecuadorian music (in an age-appropriate way), then pretend to balance bottles on their heads as they get up and DANCE!

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a step-by-step "How to dance bomba" lesson. The goal of this lesson is to provide the tools for you to treat your students to their very first introduction to the Ecadorian bomba and to inspire you and even your youngest students to get up and dance together. (Your bomba moves can't be any worse than mine!) Ideally the lesson will be the first step on your and your students' road to further Bomba del Chota exploration.

All Around This World is a global music and world cultures program that introduces kids and their grown-ups to the world using enlivening international rhythms and movement.

No materials, foreknowledge of Ecuador or dance ability necessary. Imagination and an open mind required.

Lesson includes:
-- Interactive PDF with background information introducing Ecuador and links to teacher training video and All Around This World's “Teach Kids About the Bomba del Chota” YouTube video.

-- Access to password-protected “How to Teach Kids About the Bomba del Chota” video. All Around This World founder and lead teacher Jay Sand introduces you to Ecuador and suggests ways to share the lesson with kids, from infants-in-arms to 9 year-olds. In case you feel less than confident about singing and dancing with your students, the video includes a section with Jay teaching the lesson directly to kids. ** Teacher training video is on Vimeo.com. Please make sure you can access Vimeo videos before you buy the lesson.

-- Sections include: Vocabulary/Terms, Discussion/Projects, Learning Outcome/Goal, Materials, Assessment

-- Printable summary of lesson for kids to take home (both color and back and white)

-- Common core and standards information (“National Council for Social Studies” “National Standards for Music Education”)

All Around This World lessons are a small part of Jay Sand's independently crafted, mission-driven educational project that includes:
-- weekly online classes (Jay makes a new class available each week for families and schools to share with their students)
-- Award-winning multilingual CDs such as All Around This World: Latin America and All Around This World: Africa
-- the All Around This World website, with over 1,000 pages that introduce kids and their families to music and culture from every inhabited continent
-- parent-child classes, family-friendly concerts and school workshops
and always much more...
