Five Little Inuit
http://www.canteach.ca/elementary/songspoems7.html
Five little Inuit fishing in the ice,
The first one said, "I'm glad we're being nice."
The second one said, "There's a polar bear over there."
The third one said, "I don't care."
The fourth one said, "I'm going to my igloo."
The fifth one said, "I think I'm going with you."
Then wooh went the wind, and out went the light,
And the five little Inuit skated out of sight
Five little Eskimos by the Igloo Door

One went out to feed the dogs, then there were four.
Four little Eskimos rowing out to sea,
One jumped on an iceberg, then there were three.
Three little Eskimos making fish stew,
One burned his finger, then there were two.
Two little Eskimos hunting for fun,
One chased a baby seal, then there was one.
One little Eskimo all his work done,
Went home to supper, then there were none.
My Igloo
http://stepbystepcc.com/arctic2.html

My igloo is round with a tiny door. (Make circle w/hands then hold hand low to ground.)
It's made of cold ice & snow. (Pretend to shiver.)
The inside is covered with blankets & fur. (Spread hands over wide area.)
So it's warm when the winter winds blow. (Hug self to keep warm.)
