This Old Earth song is just what you need for a Build a Poem, Earth Day, activity - a fun strategy to teach the kids about keeping our earth clean. (Sung to "This Old Man")


Hang the colorful rhyme poster near a pocket chart center. The kids build the poem, sequencing the large print word cards. When done, the students love to retell or sing the poem to the class - great for a shared reading activity, take-home activity bag, a station to complete when done with their seatwork.

Work on rhyming, concepts of print, sentence structure, and non-fiction science and social studies in PreK, kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade.
