There are a ton of great songs out there that classroom teachers can use to help bolster their science lessons. Research has shown that students learn better when seeing material presented in a variety of formats, so music is just one more way to get the message across. Plus, a catchy jingle can really help cement something in a student’s mind (hear the “mass divided by the volume” song in our podcast, below!).
One of my Science Teaching Tips podcasts “Sing a Song of Science” plays you some of our favorites and talks about how you can use them in the classroom.
The Science Songwriters Association has some good stuff on their website, and links to individual artists
There is also a very good website called Songs for Teaching that has music for all sorts of subjects (not just science)
