Rain Day

Movement Lesson
for Rain Day

The students will use parts of their bodies to create the sounds of a rainstorm.


  • A wide open space to sit in a circle



  1. Brainstorm with the students the different sounds which can be heard during a rainstorm.

  2. Have the students sit in a circle on the floor.  Start by having them all rub their hands against their thighs gently.  This will sound like a gentle rain first beginning.  They should then pat their hands against their thighs very slowly.  Everyone should increase the speed of the pats to simulate the rain falling faster and harder.  Then everyone should slow down at the same pace to simulate the rainstorm moving away and getting quieter.

  3. Brainstorm with the class how to make claps and rumbles of thunder using their bodies as well.


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Go outside and draw "puddles" with chalk on a paved area.  Have the students jump in the puddles or from puddle to puddle.
