GRAMMY winners They Might Be Giants are back with a whole new creative way to look at science. HERE COMES SCIENCE follows up their successful past two childrens albums HERE COME THE ABCS and HERE COME THE 123S. with songs like "Electric Car," "Photosynthesis" and "Solid Liquid Gas" among others, kids will learn about science while having fun.
Every K-5 classroom should invest in the music and DVD video of TMBG's Here Comes Science. The toe-tapping sequence of science topics presented in sight and sound has something for every grade level in the areas of physical, earth, and life sciences.
The scientific process is made clear in the kick-off song, Science is Real. Songs with influences from every decade of rock and roll will help students make meaning of tricky scientific topics such as circulation, photosynthesis, speed and velocity, and states of matter.
Additionally, the music and video help to dispel common scientific myths, as well as inspires the use of scientific inquiry at every level. Using real-world connections students can relate to, a stimulating soundtrack that educates, and eye-popping graphics that punch the point make Here Comes Science a great teaching tool.
Teachers can use the songs and video to begin a unit of study, assess prior knowledge of a topic to help plan instruction, differentiate instruction, stimulate further discussion of a topic, expose students to new concepts, and develop science vocabulary and comprehension. -- Susan Lee Poage, Kindergarten Teacher Professor of Early Childhood Education Winner of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics
