In class, you could ask 4 students to come to the white board and each draw one of the missing measures.
Zoom: You could ask the students to write down all the missing measures.
Ask the students to identify the song. (I see the Moon)
If at home, find 2 paper plates, or cut out 2 circles.
Copy the paper plate movement.
After trying these ideas, create your own!

The music in this video is fast for Grade 2. Watch the demo to learn the movements.
Then either sing unaccompanied at a slower tempo or slow the video down.
If you use the primary video player there's a gear wheel tool on the bottom right that you can use to slow the video.
Optional - if you'd like to use the sea songs from Musicplay 2 in a program, a script is giving in supporting resources.
