The Songs

The purpose of the Environmental the Musical songs is to deliver clear messages to the listener.  I tried to create easy-to-learn, catchy songs children would enjoy singing. I deliberately included responses to help make it easy to engage children in the learning process. Singing responses can often bring out the competitive spirit in children, resulting in each group striving to be the best at their part. This can also help to reinforce the learning of the lyrics and messages contained within in the song. It can also lead to children developing a real sense of ownership of the song and enhance the whole social aspect of the singing experience.

The Resource CD makes it easy to teach the melodies and, for more experienced groups, 7 of the songs have optional harmony.
