We’ve all played with our food, but when was the last time you actually played your food?
Sustainable Songs is a fun and imaginative music project that encourages children to make connections between food, sustainability, and music.
Developed in partnership with The a2 Milk Company, Sustainable Songs takes students through a process of making and playing fruit and veggie instruments, performing the Food Groove song especially created for this project, and then recycling the scraps to make a delicious Musical Soup or other delicious dishes.
Each lesson has rich links to musical learning, but you don’t need to be an expert in music to work through the activities. We’ve supplied all the instructions you need to make the instruments and play the catchy Food Groove.
In addition to the classroom, Sustainable Songs is a great activity to do at home with small or larger groups of children using basic materials you’ll find at the supermarket and in your own kitchen. You don’t need to be an expert in music to work through the activities, we’ve supplied all the instructions you need to make the instruments and play the catchy song!
