Teaching ideas & activities

1. Try to find names and voices of different animals and fit them to the song. If you don’t find more, try to invent them, e.x. “…and on his farm he had some zupkies/e-i-e-i-o/With a zup zup here/and a zup zup there…”.

Of course it’s very funny to accompany every verse with the corresponding movements of the animals.

2. Use specific words as the voice of the animal or the “e-i-e-i-o” and play on the time some Orff instruments, or just clap.

Song Info

Each verse of the song corresponds to a different animal and its sound. It is a song with repetitive parts where the text stays almost the same from verse to verse, with only one or two words changing (see also other nursery rhymes and kids songs like “The Wheels on the Bus”, “Finger Family”, “Baby Bumblebee”, “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, “Rain, rain, go away”).
