This song is a great performance piece for upper elementary.
It uses swing rhythms.
Create movements to go with each ostinato.
After you've learned the song in unison, layer the ostinatos until you can perform all 4 parts.
If singing is not allowed, do the movements to the music.
Or - play the ostinato patterns on barred instruments or Boomwhackers.
