Unformatted text preview: Table of Contents for Fire Circle Program ***Please see Master Copy of the program in Laura’s Computer Files. Because of the length of the program, 53 pages; and its nature to be used more as a way to brainstorm ideas than to act as a script. 1) Campfire Etiquette 2) Campfire Location 3) Music Activities pg 2-11 Why drum circles Junk drums activity Terms and techniques to drum circles Starting the rhythm notes Build instruments, see pages 3-8 with names of instruments on top of page, below are extra ideas I’ve done 4) Advice for the activities and fundraising from teachers around the country pages 8-9 5) Songs and what DRUM stands for see pages 9-11 6) Tell Stories see those on pages 12-15 or use any in Keepers of the Animals or Keepers of the Earth 7) Fire tactics page 26-33 Mechanical 28 Electrical 29 Chemical 30 Special Affects 32-33 8) Perform Skits page 34-49 Bibliography that includes my favorite websites to go to for games to play with groups Campfire Etiquette 1) No flashlights 2) No clapping or booing-that’s why we have ‘cheers’ 3) No talking-unless you are involved in an activity, talking spoils the mood and detracts from whatever is going on. Campfire Location If you want to make your campfire even more memorable, consider its location. If camping by a lake, why not construct a solid raft and have a fire burning on it. An alternative may be to have the fire towed by a canoe. Host the burning fire using a pulley system above the camp ground and at the camp fire leader’s call, lower the flame to the childrens’ circles’ center. When you have a particularly large group of participants, instead of one central fire, build three or four, this also allows for creative planning when a skit or story involves several chemical fire affects. Activities Music Activities pg 2-11 Why drum circles Junk drums activity Terms and techniques to drum circles Starting the rhythm notes Build instruments, see pages 3-8 with names of instruments on top of page, below are extra ideas I’ve done 1) Bells glued on ankle bracelets that shake as one dances by the flames. 2) Hands beating on a picnic table make great rhythmic sound 3) A small number of beans inside an empty glass sauce jar 4) Pitched Instruments Kazoo - Take a toilet paper tube, decorate. Stick one end in a pan of glue. Then place on waxed paper till it dries. Punch a hole in the other end, trim around the waxed paper and hum away.
