Grades K-6 * This collection begins with a cross-curricular unit on the Cherry Blossom Festival, and includes folk tales, percussion jams, Japanese folk songs, origami, and more. Continue on to the delightful song and Orff arrangement of "The Penguin Waddle," and learn about recycling in "A New Revolution."
