We'll learn through songs some basic environmental facts and fun things to know. Like the fact that we are made up of mostly water, just like our planet. And what a habitat is, and what a water cycle is. We'll find out how everything is connected. We'll look at things we like that come from the earth, and maybe even play some instruments that are made of those things.
