The Continents Song, a Singable Map

Posted on: January 14, 2012

When I went into Ms. Anctil’s class the other day, her class sang “The Continents” song for me which they had just learned.  This inspired me to find a map for singing the song.  It wasn’t easy to find a map of just the continents in color.  After searching for a couple of days, I found a terrific map in pleasing colors on the website: ephotopix.com.  I paid for the map with PayPal and the map maker sent me an email with digital map attached the next day.

This map and song make great teaching tools for anyone to learn the names of the seven continents and where they are on earth.

**********************

THE CONTINENTS
(Tune: “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands”)

We’ve got the whole globe in our hands.
We’ve got the whole globe in our hands.
We’ve got the whole globe in our hands.
We’ve got the whole globe in our hands.
We’ve got North and South America
In our hands.
We’ve got Europe, Asia, Africa
In our hands.
We’ve got Australia and Antarctica
In our hands.
We’ve got the whole globe in our hands.
