Another way to play is to accompany the song on Boomwhackers. Use CEG Boomwhackers, beginning with one tube, and adding a new note each verse. You could give students CEG Boomwhackers, tone bars or Orff instruments and ask them to create an accompaniment for the song.

For “one hammer,” play along with low C Boomwhacker. For “two hammers,” play along with a C and an E Boomwhackers. For “three hammers,” play along with a C, E, and G Boomwhackers. For “four hammers,” add the high C Boomwhacker.

Teach the Orff arrangement for this song. Invite the students to choose non-pitched instruments and create a soundscape that might sound like a construction site. Use the soundscape as an introduction to the song.

If you don't have Orff instruments students could create their own accompaniments with unpitched instruments, or create rhythmic or melodic ostinatos to accompany this song.

The teacher is the leader and the students do the echo part (in brackets). This is another cumulative game, adding actions each verse, till confusion wins. Begin stamping your foot on the words “wooden shoe.” Continue the foot stamping, as you add each action. As you sing each verse, you add another action to what you are already doing.

1. Timbuktu - wooden shoe stomp one foot
