Create the Sounds of a Thunderstorm in the Classroom Submitted by Virginia in Idaho


When the entire class performs the actions in unison, the effect is the sound of a thunder and rain storm as it builds then dissipates.

Create a thunderstorm.
The order is:

  1. rub your hands together
  2. snap your fingers
  3. clap your hands together in an irregular cadence
  4. slap your hands on your legs (at this time a student flicks a light switch on and off to represent lightning, while another beats a drum to symbolize thunder)
  5. stomp your feet
  6. slap your hands on your legs and stomp your feet (represents height of the storm)
  7. stomp your feet
  8. slap our hands on your legs
  9. clap your hands together in an irregular cadence
  10. snap your fingers
  11. rub your hands together
  12. open palms (quiet)

Have fun!
