Recorders @ RCHK
We got off to a bit of a rough start, finding it hard to search through reams of Web pages and youtube clips of dances and computer games, neither of which we were looking for.
At the end of our first session of research, some groups had found songs and the country they originated from, and some had not. We also had a very difficult time finding the connection to the culture once we had found a game to explore the history of. Here is what we found in out first day:
Doggie, Doggie, where’s my bone
1 Potato, 2 Potato - England
Pat a cake
England Folk Song
Few people knew how to cook in this time, so they wanted the baker not to lose the cake for their child)
