The Noble Duke of York

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 15 minutes

This is a traditional action song that will get your child moving while she learns directions.

  1. Teach your child the following song and the movements that accompany it:
The Noble Duke of York,
He had 10,000 men
(hold up ten fingers)
He marched them all straight up a hill
(point up and rise up on tiptoes)
And marched them down again
(point down and squat to the ground)
And when they're up, they're up up up!
(point up and rise up on tiptoes)
And when they're down, they're down, down, down,
(point down and squat to the ground)
And when they're only half way up,
(stoop halfway)
They're neither
Up nor down!
(quickly jump up and then land on the ground)
