INTEGRATING CLASSROOM LEARNING ~ THROUGH SONG (Social Studies/H.S.I.E; Creative & Performing Arts; Literacy...)!
Students learned the interactive, curriculum-aligned song as part of their Unit of Work, 'WORKERS IN OUR COMMUNITY', then dramatised it at a school assembly.
*VIDEO 2: Students then read sentences they'd written to go along with the artwork they'd created, e.g. 'I would like to be a... because...'.

There are so many workers in our community,
Providing goods and services for all our wants and needs;
Whether paid or unpaid, everyone agrees,
Their generosity and skills, we appreciate indeed!
Oh! Who do you think I am?
What do you think I do?
I’m not an Engineer or a Socceroo.
I take care of sick people,
That is what I do.
I am a ... Nurse.
How clever of you!
