Our kids love to talk about the planets, including the Earth. We talk a lot about things that are good for the Earth, such as recycling and not good for the earth, such as littering. For some reason, they think the word is “glitter” rather than litter. It cracks me up when they point to the ground and indignantly announce that someone glittered! I have corrected them to no avail. We have been to our local beaches, but hadn’t discussed that there are different names for the ocean depending on where you are in the world. I decided to teach them the names of the 5 oceans by making up a song with a familiar tune. I find that they learn things much faster when it is set to music.
