From a social marketing listserv...

I was wondering if anyone had any creative ways of tying in sustainability into lesson plans for fine arts, specifically music. The target audience is elementary aged students.



Hi Susanne, Check out the Voices of Nature Elementary School Program "Cycle of Life" at http://www.cycleoflife.ca/

Alex Ferguson school here in Calgary Alberta created a CD last year titled "Pitch to the Planet". The kids worked with Calgary musician Kris Demeanor to develop the lyrics and create the CD. I was lucky enough to be at their CD release party, which was amazing!


Susanne: I know that Raffi, the Canadian children's musician, is passionate about sustainability issues and has some resources on his website, including relevant songs: http://www.raffinews.com/sustainability/raffi http://www.raffinews.com/sustainability/cool-it (his song about climate change)

A friend who teaches kindergarten also recommends the resources at this 'Songs for Environmental Education' website: http://www.geocities.com/envirosongs/
