Conservation


Welcome back to More with Music!

It's always a great feeling to make it to Friday!  
For me it means a little downtime and rest is quickly approaching.  The weekly rush can seem never ending at times, but seeing students learn and grow somehow makes it all more than worthwhile.  

Today I want to share a song I wrote and have been singing with students this week.  
Many of the middle and high school classrooms I work in are talking about conservation, pollution, recycling,etc.. this month.  I decided to write a simple song about some of the ways we conserve water.  The four examples I included are:   turn water off when it's not in use, fix all leaks and drips, turn the water off while you're brushing your teeth, and take shorter showers.

The students have so far been loving this song.  We clap to the beat at the beginning of the song and then use different motions with our hands to illustrate each example of water conservation.  
You can listen to the song below.


As always, thanks for stopping by More with Music and stay tuned for next weeks' song post!
