Surfboard Boogie

Wipeout! Splash!
I like to incorporate a little drama into my music classes.  I play the music wipeout on my keyboard and the kids follow the prompts of surfboard dancing until it's time to go overboard into the water, splash!
They wear leis while on the boards.  Sometimes we get one person to wear a grass skirt :0)
The surfboards are made out of foamcore...I actually recycled from something else I had made.  Then I painted on them.  They are about 2-1/2 feet long.
