Does anyone have a song that teaches the five oceans? I found some for four of the five, but not all five. Anything is appreciated-thanks! PS the five are: atlantic, pacific, indian, artic, and southern. Also, I would love a song to teach the continents as well please. TIA!
To learn the seven continents,
Think of the letter A
And when you're down to only one
An E will save the day.
There's Africa, Antarctica,
Australia, Asia, too.
The oceans run between them with their waters deep and blue.
There's also two Americas, North and South, you see.
Now, we're coming to the end.
Europe starts with E!
The kids use their bodies to sing this song to help them visualize the continent/map layout as they sing.
Stand with feet together, arms held out from body parallel w/ the ground.
North America (shake left hand)
Europe (touch nose)
Asia (shake right hand)
Africa, Africa (rub belly as you sing this part; I tell mine many people in Africa are hungry
because much of the continent is desert so they don't produce enough
food for all their people)
South America (touch left knee)
Australia (touch right knee)
Antarctica, Antarctica (touch toes)
When I'm teaching the song, before teaching tune, we also discuss that our heads are the North Pole, our hips are the equator, and our feet are the South Pole.)
Try the Dr. Jean CD-Sing to Learn. It has the continents and the Oceans-only four of them though. If you go to her website, www.drjean.org then go to the lyrics of the songs, she has the words for you to use. We enjoy this CD.
