Earth Day

I'm sure many of you have seen this idea hopping around the blog world... I'm going to give it a shot on Sunday with my class!

Listen to the song "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong. Ask the students to visualize what they hear. Have them illustrate portions of the lyrics using the following file. I separated the lyric lines so each of my 22 students will have one page. If you have more, you could have the extras make "complimentary" art to work with the theme. Or draw the entire song in one scene. Anyway, hope someone can use it! Click the title below to download all 22 pages.

  1. That's a great idea, Amanda.
    We often illustrate the lines to our anthem, O Canada, and that always turns
    out well too :)
    Thanks for the freebie.

  2. Ooh, I love this idea! Thanks for sharing it as a freebie!

    About your question on my blog... I'm a 'sort of' new teacher because I was technically hired into a teaching position the last two years, but I was an interventionist who basically worked as the assistant to another teacher. So... I taught, but this is my first year in my OWN classroom!
