Every year for Earth Day my favorite activity is to break apart the words to the Ray Charles song- What a Wonderful World. Each kiddo illustrates 1 part of the lyrics. I then make a video by playing the actual song in the background and when their part comes up, they hold up their illustration! The kids LOVE watching this video. I also bind all the pages to make a class book for all of them to look through and give this away at the end of the year! It just melts my heart! 
The template is below, it's adjusted for 22 students!


  1. This is an excellent idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Do you have an example of the video? I downloaded the file from TPT and would love to extend it in a similar way using a video.
