Here’s a brain-friendly approach to science and a new way to teach it! You’ll find that songs, raps, and stories are indispensable tools to reinforce science concepts your children are learning. Get started with an easy-to-read overview of brain-friendly teaching that touches on the work of Howard Gardner, Marian Diamond, and Robert Sylwester. Combine this innovative approach to reinforce fundamental science facts. Sing a Song of Science covers 16 topics, including matter and energy, weather, how the human body works, and many more. Each topic includes two sets of activities. Your students can construct their own understanding with the hands-on kinesthetic discovery activities. Further expand their learning with activities to reinforce the vocabulary and concepts learned in the songs. And you and your children will be able to keep up-to-date with a list of relevant web connection resources.
