Row Row Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
life is but a dream.

Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream,
If you see a crocodile
don't forget to scream.

Row, row, row your boat
gently down the river,
If you see a polar a bear
don't forget to shiver.

Row, row, row your boat
gently to the shore,
If you see a lion don't
forget to roar.

Row, row, row your boat
quickly through the sea,
If you see a pirate ship
don't forget to flee.

  • Row Row Row Your Boat is great for singing in rounds. According to the Guinness World of Records on 05/02/2013 at Shadow Mountain Records, 6,900 people sang Row Row Row Your Boat in rounds.
  • Stepping Stones

    If you have a blue sheet put it on the floor and place A4 paper or something similar across it so they are like stepping stones. If you number the stepping stones you can then play games like hopscotch or leapfrog get across the river. Make sure though that the stepping stones have a proper attachment to the ground otherwise they could be dangerous and cause someone to slip. Alternatively the stepping stones are great for roleplaying.
  • Here are some facts about water and boats. Did you know that
  • Rivers and streams start where rain falls on high ground. The rainwater then begins joining together and running downhill and if there is enough of it, it won't stop until it reaches the sea. But the journey can be long and dangerous forming waterfalls, rapids and lakes on the way.
  • Since more than two thirds of the Earth is covered with water, boats have always been very important to people. At first only small boats made out of wood were needed to help people cross streams and rivers and to carry hunters into shallow waters to go fishing. Then as people wanted to travel further and explore new territories, bigger boats called ships were built.
  • There are various ways of making a boat move through water. Like Row Row the Boat Nursery Rhyme some boats are human powered, others are blown by the wind using sails, and motorboats are propelled by engines.
  • Rowing boats, canoes and kayaks are moved by humans using paddles (oars). What other ways do human's move boats through water? In shallow waters boats called gondolas are pushed along by long sticks. Some flat boats called rafts are pulled across rivers from side to side by ropes as a way of ferrying people across the river.
  • Did you know that not all wood floats. Some of the heaviest trees don't. Yet some things that are very heavy you can get to float on water. How?

    See if you can sink a butter carton boat by putting stones in it. If you have two butter cartons see who can sink it first.
  • Row Row Row Your Boat is an American Nursery Rhyme originally published in 1852. Although the lyrics are still basically the same the tune changed several times before becoming the tune we recognise today in 1881. Nowadays though there are many slightly varied versions of how they like the nursery rhyme.
