This original text/rap tells the story of Henny Penny and her friends. Versions of this story go back 2500 years ago! My version works for a music class and/or as a beginning point to do a compare and contrast in an English unit.
As a morality tale the Fox gets Henny Penny and friends in the end! To be engaging, the students repeat the line “The sky is falling and we are all going to die!” over and over. In my music classes with K-6 grade students either drummed along with the refrain, or they created a little 4 beat movement response.
