'KEEP IT CLEAN!' ~ Curriculum Karaoke™

’Keep It Clean!’ is a curriculum-aligned, whole school, environmental rap song. It highlights responsibility for protecting our planet and provides students with simple, practical suggestions for caring for the environment.

This engaging, professionally produced song was selected for the ABC’s 2010 SING! publication for Australian schools and is bein gplayed by schools, after recess and lunch as a signal for students to clean up the playground (we call this Pavlovian environmentalism! :-)

Students read, sing & learn along as the curriculum-aligned MP4 son & lyrics video plays, and the images display on your classroom whitebard and/or other technological device.

***Tip: **Start with chorus and actions, and one verse only, for younger students, then gradually add verses.
