The aim of this activity is to create a whole group sound by working together.
Ask the girls to form a circle large enough so that everyone can see each other. Explain that together you are going to create a ‘storm’ with sound.
The leader then begins by slowly rubbing both hands together and motions for the rest of the group to join in. Once the whole group is rubbing hands, the leader then begins to click their fingers encouraging the others to follow.
By this point the girls should have got the idea that they follow whatever action the leader does. As the noise of the finger clicking rises, change the clicking to clapping. Encourage the group to be as loud as possible!
Finally bring the noise up to a crescendo by additionally stamping feet whilst continuing clapping. Allow the full effect of the storm to be felt for a minute or so.
As the ‘storm’ rages slowly stop stamping your feet. As the group follows begin to gradually halt the movements in reverse, allowing space for each stage. Bring the noise back down to hand rubbing only and then slowly end.
