Game Directions: Use different dynamics to help your friend find the snake. Buy a rubber snake at a
dollar store. Choose one child to hide the snake somewhere in the classroom in plain sight - not under
something. A second child is chosen to hunt for the snake. The class guides the “finder” to the snake by
singing softly when he is far away from the snake and louder when he is closer. Remind the students to
sing with beautiful tone at all dynamic levels.
