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.
