Celebrating Earth Day with Dance and Song

After my wonderful 2nd grade colleague, Crystal, and I wrote a song for Earth Day on Garageband, we challenged our students ( 2nd and 4th grade reading buddies) to create their own dance moves to represent Air, Fire, Water and the Earth.  If we had had more time to prepare, we would have had them compose the song but we only had 4 days to prepare! The students came up with an incredible plan and Crystal worked the magic for it to all come together.

Here is the song:




Although I cannot show you photos with their faces here, I can show a couple shots and let you hear the music.

Encouraging kids to be involved in other activities besides the school itself is truly important and this event was probably a lot of fun for them! I hope they could understand the main concept of the Earth Day and make their own conclusions. Unfortunately, school classes themselves plus homework takes so much time and sometimes children spend too much of their off school time doing their home tasks. But what for, when there exists a British English essay writing service? Sometimes it’s really important to involve kids in extracurriculars rather than keep them study 24/7.
