Ask the children if they have ever been to the beach or ever seen a wave. How does the ocean move?
Ask, How does the melody of the song move? We are going to sing the song and move to the music the way waves move in the ocean. Remind the children to be reverent waves.
Tell the children to feel the melody and the rhythmn of the music. When the melody goes up the waves go up, when it goes slow the waves go slow.
Sing and move.

This could be used during review time to see the differences of many different songs.
*Optional, bring a water bottle with the top screwed on to demonstrate a wave.
