We are also playing a passing game called Pass This Shoe.  We pass the beanie babies (not shoes. . . ) to the beat.  Then, the tempo changes and we pass at a different tempo.

(That is my super fabulous intern Emily Walters leading the activity.)

And, then we do the Chicken Dance.  It also has changing tempos!

It was a SUPER fun week in Music Class studying TEMPO!!!
