Erie Canal Choreography

Fifth Grade spent the last couple of weeks develop a more formal movement piece to accompany an arrange of Low Bridge (also known as Erie Canal).  In the primary grades choreography the kids create tends to be suggested by the text -- for example, raising hands high when the words to the song talk about the sky or the sun.  In the upper grades I encourage them to use more abstract interactive movements based on the feeling of the material.  The results are always interesting.
