I think hard times are coming, when we will be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, and can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine some real grounds for hope.

Ursla Le Guin (1929-2018)

Usage

Here are some different possibilities:

  1. Have the children mime eating and drinking. Eat to the phrase, "Gobble, gobble" and drink to the phrase "Gulp, gulp"
  2. Divide into two groups and sing alternate lines.
  3. Use as BGM when role-playing fast-food shopping.

Follow-Up

Use play food or food flash cards and divide the items into two groups depending upon whether it is "fast food" or not.
