Five Little Martians

We're studying "space" this fall, in honor of the completion of the shuttle program. We're starting with a lapbook about Earth as a transition from dinosaurs and volcanoes, then we'll move on to the moon, the solar system, and the galaxy.

So this morning, after reading about what a planet is, Wee-one said he wanted to sing a Martian song. I thought it was going to be a silly, made up song but it wasn't. I was rude and interrupted him after the first verse to ask where it was from. He learned it at a VBS we attended back in June--and he still remembers it!! (mostly)

Five little Martians
Sitting on a crater
Along came a spaceship
And one said:
See you later!

Four little Martians
Sitting on the moon
Along came a spaceship
See you soon!

Three little Martians
Sitting on a star
"Look! They're so far"

Two little Martians
Sitting on Saturn's rings
They got lonely
Then they started to sing

One little Martian
Sitting all alone
Then he got worried
Then he went home
