Songs of Animal Sounds

A group of at least nine children
Have children form a circle. Pick up a simple, familiar song and sing it through once. Split the children into smaller groups of two or three and let each group brainstorm an animal sound that can be used to sing the song. Have children try it out to see if it works. Make sure each group has chosen a different sound.
Then ask each group to sing just one line in their chosen animal sound respectively. The purpose is for them to sing it in the right time and rhythm.
