Children Learn What They Sing™
'One World' (K-6) is a content-laden, curriculum-based song about multiculturalism.
It discusses cultural similarities and differences (food, clothing, shelter, customs, language, leisure and music…), helping students to understand, celebrate, and embrace diversity.
*Tip: Sing and do Chorus actions only, with Kindergarten and younger grades, letting them listen to and discuss the verses, until they're familiar with the content. Add verses for older grades.

We are one world with different nationalities;
Some travel here to settle, from far across the seas;
All connected by our one humanity,
We are here because it is a great place to be!
Putting aside fiesta, siesta, we are all the same.
Forget skin colour, food and clothing, customs, different names.
Belonging to this human race, we’re all sisters and brothers,
So let us stand together now and be there for each other.
