Little Mermaid

In the song "Part of Your World," Ariel provides the audience with access to her inner thoughts. Her song is powerful, as audiences relate to her youthful curiosity and her desire to experience life above the sea.

Your turn! Kids will love performing "Part of Your World" at home.

Step One: Read the lyrics to "Part of Your World" out loud. (see below in italics). Discuss how Ariel is feeling in this scene. Brainstorm a list of questions that this song evokes. What does she want?

Step Two: Ariel wishes to live out of her waters, her limitations. Write a brief monologue exploring something important that you want or thought you could never have. What are/were the obstacles in your way? What feelings are evoked? Why?

Step Three: Find a partner, and take turns reading aloud your monologues. Help your partner make his or her monologue clearer and more interesting.

b>Lyrics:
Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that World

What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Betcha on land they understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand

I'm ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it – what's the word?
Burn

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore the shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that World
