Weekly Schedule:

Daily Introduction: “Big Blue Earth” Sing-along Tune in each Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. EDT and help open the day’s program by participating in an interactive sing-along.

We’ll sing the children’s song “Big Blue Earth,” which is usually featured in the Mapparium exhibit.

In fact, “Big Blue Earth” originally inspired One World—the name comes from this line in the song: “I see you, you see me, all one world, one family.” This song teaches us about peace and how to care for our global family
