Introduce the cat and mouse imagery. Cats are very sneaky and creep when they are chasing mice. Cats like to chase and pounce on mice. Have whole class practice moving around the gym like a cat creeping after a mouse for eight beats, then pounce and freeze. Divide class into As and Bs. As go creep first while Bs freeze in cat position, vice versa.

Partner work combining cat and mouse chase.



Practice sneaking as a cat, and darting as a mouse separately. Have three people pick if they are a cat or mouse and have the class guess
Partner students.

Assign students a role.



“The cat follows the mouse for seven beats and freezes in their best cat shape. Then, mouse darts for seven beats and freezes on eighth beat. I will count along with our tambourine so that we can all keep the beat together.”





NOTE


Practice with and without music. Stop and show examples of original ideas from students. Focus on interesting frozen shapes that are held, varied pathways and levels.
