Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.


(Roughly one hour preparation)

Give each patrol a box containing a cassette player, sheets with the words of a song, (Tails, Yellow Bird, Jamaica Farewell, Three Pirates) a tape with music of the song, card­board tubes, string, textas, crepe paper, dressing up gear, and sheet of instructions which might say:

• Go to patrol home. Each girl read words of song while you play tape a couple of times. Try to learn words and music.

• Choose two people, using material available, to make simple instruments, decorate and practice playing along with the music.

• Two people work out simple dance steps and rhythm on actions which fit the music.

Two people practice singing song, and help make costumes for dancers, and masks for themselves and musicians.

Put the item together and practice with the music.

When you’re all ready we’ll have a concert, each patrol in turn per­forming its item.
