Students learn how plants, animals, water, air, and soil are all connected in the Earth system. In this storybook, Simon, Anita, Emily and the rest of Ms. Patel's class gain an understanding of Earth system science while preparing their end of the school year play. Words for an instructional Earth system song are included. The play in the story can be performed as a class activity. This science-based storybook is the last of four under the title Elementary GLOBE; each book also has companion learning activities that complement the science covered in each story. GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment) is a worldwide, hands-on, K-12 school-based science education program.
