’Living Things’ (Grade K-3) is a curriculum-aligned song that highlights a variety of living things, including their different coverings, sounds, means of protection, life cycles, etc.
Young students love hearing and identifying the various animal sounds throughout the song, and the catchy chorus helps them to understand the fundamental differences between living and non-living things ~ that living things can move, grow, change.
