And "Earth" is its name.

E-A-R-T-H
E-A-R-T-H
And "Earth is its name.

We must all work to care for her,
To keep her safe and clean --

C-L-E-A-N
C-L-E-A-N
This planet we call home."

Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day to one.
Happy Earth Day to all.
We live here together.
On this planet so fair.

Happy Earth Day to one
Happy Earth Day to all.
Let's work hand in hand
To care for our home.

I Live Here on Planet Earth

(Form circle - boy / boy / girl / girl, if possible.)
I live here on planet Earth. (Point to self.)
He lives here on planet Earth. (Point to a boy.)
She lives here on planet Earth. (Point to a girl.)
They live here on planet Earth. (Point to children on opposite side of circle.)
We live here on planet Earth. (Stretch hand out and move it in a circular motion to indicate everyone in circle.)
We might as well be friends. (Join hands.)

The Earth Is Ours
(to the tune of "This Old Man")

The earth is ours,
Yours and mine,
Ours to live on, ours to share,
Ours to guard, regard, and tend with gentle care --
The earth is ours,
Yours and mine.

The Earth is a Ball
(Action Rhyme)

The Earth is a ball, (Make ball with hands.)
So tiny you see, (Pinch fingers together to indicate size.)
Tossed out into the galaxy, (Pretend to toss like baseball.)
Much smaller than the sun that gives it heat. (Make larger ball with hands and shrink it down.)
But the Earth's none too small, (Make large "X" with finger.)
You'd have to agree. (Point to friend and nod.)
It's much bigger than you and me. (Make giant ball with hands above head; point to friend, then self.)

Three Big Words
(to the tune of "Three Blind Mice")

Three big words,
Three big words --
Do you know
What they mean?
Reduce, reuse, recycle -- these
words tell us to take of Earth, please --
Three big words,
Three big words.

We Live Here on Planet Earth
(to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic")

We live here on planet Earth;
This Earth we must respect.
We live here on planet Earth;
This Earth we must protect.
We live here on planet Earth;
She's the only home we have.
So let's care for her as she cares for us.

Air and water, fields and forests,
Air and water, fields and forests,
Air and water, fields and forests,
We must work to keep them clean.

We've Got the Future in Our Hands
(to the tune of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands")

We've got the world around us in our hands,
We've got the world around us in our hands,
We've got the world around us in our hands,
It's ours to take care of.

We've got the mountains and the valleys in our hands,
We've got the deserts and the forests in our hands,
We've got the jungles and the plains in our hands,
They're ours to take care of.

We've got the birds and the bees in our hands,
We've got the creatures of the seas in our hands,
We've got the tigers and the bears in our hands,
They're ours to take care of.

We've got the rivers and the oceans in our hands,
We've got the lakes and the streams in our hands,
We've got the swamps and the marshes in our hands,
They're ours to take care of.

We've got the future in our hands,
We've got the future in our hands,
We've got the future in our hands,
It's ours to take care of.
