Old MacDonald Had A Farm

From Plank Road Publishing

arr. Paul Jennings

Our setting of this old favorite has five verses, and we chose to have the singers do imitations of the animals as opposed to the more traditional "moo, moo" and "quack, quack" approach. Either way is fine, though doing the real sounds within the correct period is a challenge your students will enjoy.

We recommend that you let your singers come up with their own sounds for the animals. For still more creativity, consider doing a "zoo" version, using five zoo animals and their sounds. You could even do an endangered animal rendition for Earth Day, or a regional version featuring just animals from your county or state. (from Music K-8, Vol. 11, No. 1)
