Down in the Deep Blue Sea


Kids love to explore the world around them, and this preschool listening activity is a great way to help them do just that. Your students will be able to use the clues in the song to decide what kind of animal they are seeing, allowing them to practice their reasoning and problem solving skills. They will also be able to learn this simple tune and sing along! Try having your students pat along with the beat to practice their entrainment skills, or their ability to feel tempo and rhythm in their body and match it with their body movements.
