    environmental issues

    waste disposal & recycling

    alternative energy resources


Colors of the wind lyrics

You think I'm an ignorant savageAnd you've been so many placesI guess it must be soBut still I cannot seeIf the savage one is meHow can there be so much that you don't know?You don't know ...You think you own whatever land you land onThe Earth is just a dead thing you can claimBut I know every rock and tree and creatureHas a life, has a spirit, has a nameYou think the only people who are peopleAre the people who look and think like youBut if you walk the footsteps of a strangerYou'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moonOr asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?Come run the hidden pine trails of the forestCome taste the sunsweet berries of the EarthCome roll in all the riches all around youAnd for once, never wonder what they're worthThe rainstorm and the river are my brothersThe heron and the otter are my friendsAnd we are all connected to each otherIn a circle, in a hoop that never endsHow high will the sycamore grow?If you cut it down, then you'll never knowAnd you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

Colors of the Wind Lyrics


Circle of life lyrics

From the day we arrive on the planet And blinking, step into the sun There's more to see than can ever be seen More to do than can ever be done There's far too much to take in here More to find than can ever be found But the sun rolling high Through the sapphire sky Keeps great and small on the endless round It's the Circle of Life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love Till we find our place On the path unwinding In the Circle The Circle of Life It's the Circle of Life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love Till we find our place On the path unwinding In the Circle The Circle of Life

Circle of Life Lyrics


Cycles of nature

Cycles of Nature


Exploring the environment

  • 3 cycles of nature are the water, carbon, and nitrogen cycles

  • Water Cycle similar to the Isty Bitsy Spider song relates to the way water is recycled through our planet. Evaporation (liquid to gas), condensation (water vapor to liquid), and precipitation (rain) are the steps of the cycle.

  • Carbon cycle is similar only this time carbon dioxide and oxygen are recycled through our planet. Producers, decomposers, and consumers help this process stay in motion.

  • Nitrogen cycle is how

    nitrogen gas is recycled.

    Nitrogen cycles include

    animal waste

    and the bodies of dead

    organisms


Cycles of nature reflection questions

Cycles of Nature Reflection Questions

  • Defend this statement: the sun is the driving force behind the water cycle.

  • Explain how the Itsy Bitsy spider is related to the water cycle.

  • Compare and contrast the role that producers, consumers, and decomposers play differently in the carbon and nitrogen cycles.

  • Choose the cycle that you believe relates most to your everyday routines and explain why you chose this cycle.
