Earth Day Piggyback Song: We’ve Got the Whole World in Our HandsBy Teachers.Net News Desk
We’ve Got the Whole World In Our Hands
This traditional song is especially appropriate for use during Earth Day theme activities. Children can pick up individual globes to hold up while singing “We’ve got the whole world in our hands,” or pass around an inflatable globe. (Oriental Trading Company sells small inflatable globes for a reasonable amount.) Other props might include baby dolls for the “tiny babies.” Use hand gestures indicating everybody “here” and everybody “there.” Note: Repeating a relatively short song is effective, especially when performing for others, providing more opportunity for participation by the performers and more prolonged entertainment for the audience. Consider inviting audience participation for a second round of singing!
