Pick It Up, Pass It…………..

 Pick It Up, Pass It…………..
The music classes at Indian Trail Elementary School participated in a children’s game from Africa. We used the music Sansaw akroma to play a community-building game. In Ghana, the children use stones to pass around. In our music classes, we used beanbags. The goal was for all the students to pass their beanbag to the person beside them at the same tempo. The game is not like “hot potato” where someone gets out. Instead, everyone should synergize to make sure that all students are successful. The students had lots of fun while they each tried to begin with the end in mind.
