What is it?
The Principle of Family means doing everything that you can to make sure everyone in the human family is well treated; it means that you will work with others to make sure that all boys and girls have a home, clean water to drink, food to eat, a school to go to and a doctor to look after them if they are sick.

Do you pledge to uphold the Principle of Family?
"I pledge to respect and understand that I am part of the whole human Family and I will do all that I can to make sure everyone in the human family is well treated."

Enriched Play
Invite children to draw pictures of themselves and collect photographs of children in other countries. Talk about how children in other countries are different and also how they are the same. Name some of the things that everyone needs, no matter where they live. Put all of these self portraits and drawings together in an album and call it "Our Little Earth Charter Family Album".

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...

THREE! Is FAMILY and family is everyone!
For the FAMILY respect and care
Everyone should have a home, Food and water too;
Every boy and girl should have doctors and schools.

CHORUS
So, follow the Charter from 1 to 8
THREE is FAMILY it’s never too late!
Earth and Rosie will take you there
The Little Earth Charter’s a treasure to share

Hey there, Planet Earth here!
Believing in you is so important and believing in others is important too
The human family has to look after all its brothers and sisters
in every corner of Earth (that’s me!) to be happy and healthy! Hooray!

CHORUS
So, follow the Charter from 1 to 8 THREE is FAMILY it’s never too late!
Earth and Rosie will take you there The Little Earth Charter’s a treasure to share

For the FAMILY… we will care
