The Tale Of Sudan And Zimbabweby Sandra Seibert, Jerrad Seibert
The Tale of Sudan and Zimbabwe is meant to be a hands-on experience for the listeners. The tale can be told while the story reader is playing various kinds of drums. The listeners can echo the storyteller. Rain sticks can be used for the rain. Use your imagination through the sounds of thunder, etc. The song uses pitches mi, so, and la and can be taught as an echo song, or it is perfect for having the listeners read the pitches and figure out the melody. You can have the listeners play the rhythm of the song, using the concept of the quarter rest. When Sudan sings the song with the village people, some of the listeners can sing Sudan's part and some can sing the village people's part as an ostinato.
This tale also can coincide with a unit on African drumming and is always interesting for the listeners to find out that Sudan and Zimbabwe really exist on the map. Many questions arise if the story reader has a world map handy to show the listeners where Sudan and Zimbabwe are located.
