Children Learn What They Sing™
‘Living Things’ (Lower Primary) is a curriculum-based 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.

Living things are sometimes large,
Sometimes very small;
Moving ’round on two legs,
Four, six, eight or more!
Some have tails or fins or wings,
For land or sea or air;
Some stay in the same spot,
And don’t go anywhere.
Living things can grow and change,
Walk, run, swim and fly.
Non-living things do nothing at all,
Because they’re not alive.
