Information About The World Is A Rainbow

This is a classic song by Greg and Steve that has been around for 25 years.

This song's lyrics tell children that we are all different in many ways. Some of us are different colors, some of us speak different languages, and some of us simply look different. This song teaches children not to judge those who are different.

Greg and Steve are a musical duo who have been writing and making children's music since the 1970's. They have won many awards for their songs and schools and organizations all over the world use their lyrics and songs to help promote education. More can be found about Greg and Steve at Wikipedia.

Greg and Steve have teaching backgrounds with their focus being autism and special education. They felt their music had special effects on children in these groups and decided to create more.

The World is a Rainbow has been used a lot more recently with the incident at Sandy Hook. It has been played at many functions and fund raisers to gain awareness of all of the differences that children have.

Children can act out the lyrics of this song in a few ways. A teacher could assign each student a specific child to represent and they could act out the lyrics together to show that everyone is different. In the lyrics, "You see them all around", teachers could ask the students to stand in a circle and turn slowly as they are singing this lyric. This will show them that we are all different and all we have to do is turn around to see.

In the lyrics, "But the world is a mixing cup, Just look what happens when you stir it up", teachers can ask the children to pretend as if they are stirring ingredients to make a cake.

It is a soothing calming song that could take the place of hip hop.

We have sung this song for many years in my Kindergarten classes and do a MUCH better job than the Youtube video you have. We even sign as we sing. It is too bad that you don't have a better rendition to share.

When I was in Kindergarden I told my black teacher that I didn't want to play with this girl (who happened to be my teacher's daughter) because she was a different color.... So, for graduation, we sang this song! It's such an embarassing story, but it's one of those childhood memories that make you laugh.
