Husing arranged the music, drawing inspiration from the popular Muppets tune “It Ain’t Easy Being Green,” sung by Kermit the Frog. But she gave lyrical license to her students who contributed their own “green” experiences, from remembering to throw plastic bottles in recycling bins to turning out the lights when you leave a room.
The students worked hard, memorizing and rehearsing their version of “It Ain’t Easy Being Green” three times a week before filming the video submission in only two takes. Their impressive efforts truly paid off when they were awarded the $500 prize, which will go toward the professional development of teachers at the Portledge School.
