All Living Things

Lyrics: This song was written to help students in grades K-1 in Philadelphia with a central concept in their Science curriculum.
All living things need - four things.
Four things to be alive:
Air, food, water and a place to live.
That's what we all need to survive.
This is a round in 4 parts, with optional ostinati. There are also movement possibilities:
hold up 4 fingers on the downbeats of measures 2 and 4 (on the rests);
then count with fingers on "air, food, water"; shake 4 fingers on the beat with "place to live";
make an inclusive hand gesture on "that's what we all need"
