Pete Seeger used to do "I Had A Rooster". He would sing a verse for each animal and then draw a quick sketch of it and have the kids come onstage and hold it when he sang about it.

I Had a rooster and the rooster pleased me I fed my rooster by the sycamore tree My little rooster went "cock-a-doodle-doo" "Dee oodle-ee-oodle ee-oodle ee-oo"

Then other animals with other noises that they make.

Sam Hinton did a version of this song called the Barnyard Song in which he made all the noises of the animals remarkably well.
