What is it?
The Principle of the Earth means that you promise to take care of this Earth, the water, the air, the soil and all living things and you will do everything in your power to live in a way that is not wasteful nor greedy. The Earth is the home we share.

Do you pledge to uphold the Principle of the Earth?
"I pledge to respect and care for the Earth, the home we all share. I will do all that I can to protect the water, the air, the soil, and all living things."

Enriched Play
Grow something edible! Planting seeds in real earth is a hands on experience in caring for our Planet.

Teach children how to water a plant and to give it enough light and good soil. If you are growing beans or tomatoes, you can pick them once they are ripe and eat them. The earth needs to be healthy for our food to be nutritious!
You can call this "Our Little Earth Charter Earth Garden".

The Song!
Music and Lyrics by JC Little, arranged and performed by Rosie Emery

From 1 to 8, The Little Earth Charter
Earth and Rosie will take you there...

FIVE! Is EARTH , the home that we share,
For the EARTH, we must respect and care!
The mountains and the forests, the rivers and the sea,
The soil, the water and the air that we breathe!

CHORUS
So follow the Charter from 1 to 8
FIVE is the EARTH and it's never too late
Earth and Rosie will take you there
The LIttle Earth Charter's a treasure to share

Hi! I’m Planet Earth, your home!
And whether you live here, or here, or here, you all live together somewhere on me.
Each and every one of you needs to take care of me because I am one of a kind!
I have everything you need and there’s enough for ALL if we do it right!


CHORUS
So follow the Charter from 1 to 8
FIVE is the EARTH and it's never too late
Earth and Rosie will take you there
The LIttle Earth Charter's a treasure to share

For LIFE we'll care.
