Play the clap game for "A Sailor Went to Disneyland"

The clapping pattern used throughout the song is: clap own hands, clap partner’s right hand, clap own hands, clap partner’s left hand, etc. On the words shown below, you substitute other actions for the clapping pattern. When teaching clapping games, it’s a good idea to try the game with the entire class being your "partner in the air" until they know all the movements. Then allow them to choose partners and play the game with their partners.

1. A Sailor went to Dis, Dis, Dis (three finger circles on either side of your head)
2. A Sailor went to knee, knee, knee (chop knee three times)
3. A Sailor went to land, land, land (pat floor three times)
4. A Sailor went to Disneyland (one finger circle, chop knee, pat floor)
