This song introduces the concept of high and low notes in music that then are labeled as so and mi. The song also uses a half note and can be used to introduce the half note.

Review the game for “Hill, Hill”

Copy Link
Song Used: Hill, Hill

Review the game for “Hill, Hill”

Have the students form a long line. The leader faces the line. All sing the song. The students try to run to the opposite side of the room or the field, while the leader tags players. If a player is tagged, they join the leader in facing the line and tagging more players. You can play this game between two soccer goalposts.

They sing again, and all of the chasers try to tag the students who are running from one side of the field to the other. The game continues until all (or most) of the students are tagged.

In small rooms, substitute a movement (such as hopping) for the students to get to the opposite side. If students are trying to be tagged, red flag them so they don’t get to join the leader. If too many students are caught each time, restrict the leader to catching one or two students each round. The game continues until all players are tagged.
