Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd! 

Why should the science classroom be the only place students celebrate? Encourage students to think about the planet through music with this engaging lyric-writing activity. Head to the ClassPlay song “Save the Planet” to check out this brand new activity!

How to access “Save the Planet”:

  1. Visit and log into your Teacher Account
  2. Click the TEACHER Tab
  3. Click the ClassPlay icon, located on the Teacher Dashboard
  4. Type the song title into the Search Bar

“Save the Planet” 

“Save the Planet” teaches students different ways to take care of the Earth they call home. From recycling to exploring new energy sources, this song opens a cross-curricular discussion for students to share what they may have learned in science class.

Orff instruments can also be implemented easily with this song. With our Full Score Activity, located in the Song Hub, you can customize based on your teaching needs. You can adjust highlight settings and show, hide, or solo parts to help break down the song

How to Save the Planet Worksheet

Once they are familiar with the song, give students the chance to hone their own songwriting skills! Download the worksheet linked below, or find it in the PRINTABLES tab of the Song Hub. Challenge students to fill in the missing lyrics with their own ideas.

Encourage students to think of ways they can impact their environment at home! Can they pick up trash around their yard? Can they encourage their family to start recycling? There is no bad idea when it comes to cleaning up our world!

Have your students discuss, as a class or with a partner, the changes they can make in their daily routines to keep our world beautiful.

Why not share the worksheet and song with the science teacher at your school? They can access this activity and Quaver’s complete curriculum free at!

    Is there a email message or blog specifically for middle school users? Apparently I only have access to 6-8 level songs and materials. I get bummed out wanting to try your featured lessons, and my access is denied.

    Hi Tracy! That’s a great point and I am very happy you alerted us to that!

    We will make it a point to start featuring resources that middle school teachers can use as well. We don’t want our awesome 6-8 users to feel left out!
