Students will learn, memorize, and perform dances from two cultures. Prior to this assessment, students will have learned two simple folk dances. For this particular assessment, the hukilau, a Hawaiian dance, and the hora, an Israeli dance, will be used. Folk dance selections can be modified to meet program curriculum needs. Resources for other folk and social dances include the following:
o Five Easy Social Dances for Early Elementary
o America Dances: A Kaleidoscope of American Dances from http://www.edact.com/files/lyrics/CD57.pdf
o Christy Lane Enterprises Multicultural Folk Dance DVD
