The Itsy Bitsy Spider – an Upper and Lower Body Main Moves Activity

Who’s ready to warm up our upper and lower bodies!

The Itsy Bitsy Spider rhyme and song can be utilized in a variety of ways in your Intellidance® classes! In this video, we’ve curated a fun, playful activity that focuses on the Brain Move pattern of moving the Upper and Lower Body.

Why Focus on Upper and Lower Body?

The organization of the upper and lower body allows them to move independently or in synchronization. Grounding the upper or lower body also promotes emotional stability. Learn more about the BrainDance™ and Brain Moves in our previous blog post HERE.

Fun Variations

Switch things up with these fun variations:

  • Make your body small and sing the song quietly
  • Make your body large and sing the song loud
  • Sit on the floor and experiment with moving your legs while seated
  • Follow the leader around the room
  • March in and out of a circle

Use your imagination! The possibilities are endless!

Learn more about what makes Intellidance® unique

The foundation of the Intellidance® Method is the combination of dance and music concepts, identifying specific vocabulary in dance and music, and developing the understanding of both through the connection between concepts. These connected concepts provide opportunities for children to explore, discover, practice, and create using multiple senses and intelligences. This is what makes the Intellidance® Method so unique!
