The Continental Drift

So, if the weather in your neck of the woods is anything like the weather here in Wisconsin you have had some really rambunctious little ones! It has been raining, sleeting, or snowing pretty much ALL week here. That means indoor recess for the last 4 days. Plus... we only had Good Friday and Easter Monday off. (My school district doesn't believe in spring break... or at least that is my joke.) So, my crazy Kindergarten - 5th grade students have seriously been off the walls. Especially the classes that I have at the end of the day.

I decided it would probably be a good idea to find a way to get some of the pent up energy out before trying to teach some important musical concepts. So, I give you The Continental Drift video from Ice Age 4:


I used this with all my classes from 1st - 3rd grade, but I'm sure you could use it for some of your other kiddos. The kids loved it and it really did help them get back on focus!

Let me know if you use it or if you have any other great dancing videos for elementary school students!
