Play your part along with the song, "Shine a Light for Peace."
If you have brothers or sisters at home, go outside and play this as a race game. Sing the song then race to the finish.
Zoom: choose one child to be the "runner." The "runner" will speed-walk quickly back and forth in front of their zoom device, so the rest of class sees them going on and off camera. Sing the song and count how many times during the song you see the "runner" on camera.
In-Person: if possible, go outside and play as a "race" game. If not, mark a dice with 3 quarter notes and 3 eighth notes. Draw 2 stick-man "racers" on the board and 5 squares till the finish line. One stick-man will be the quarter note (ta) and one will be the ti-ti. Listen to the song and have the class make up actions. At the end of the song, roll the dice, and move the stick-man representing the note rolled. Continue until one stick-man wins the race.
