Song in 5/4, steady beat
“Let’s go walking along, let’s go walking along,
First I follow, follow you, Then you follow follow me”
Choose children to lead the line. Use a drum. Vary the tempo. Encourage the children to feel the beat strongly with their feet.
Imagine things encountered on the walk, or reasons for walking/marching/dancing.
Play stop and start
Everybody stops when the drum stops. Everybody starts from where they left off when the drum restarts.
