Genuine respect and curiosity about human life on this marvelous blue planet in all its diversity is
artfully encouraged in the song New Geography for children ages 5-12.
The song is written in the passionate belief that we humans can overcome prejudice and cultural bias by thoughtful and compassionate education.
“Sense of place” begins in early childhood. It is inextricably connected to our sense of belonging. How we engender sense of place in children is so important. It opens or closes minds and hearts.
The song New Geography helps to open the conversation about where we live. It helps us define “home” from local to global citizenship.
Children love to see how humans do things in different countries. The adventure into the world mosaic of human expression can begin at an early age – through language, music, story, art, dance, architecture, custom, costume, culture, history…There are so many ways to get to know the world.
Geography is about becoming intelligent caretakers of our home planet earth as bright lights in the world.
We hope you enjoy this wonderful song.
“North, South, East and West
Be a point of light upon the map
North, South, East and West
This is lesson one in Geography”
