Bring science concepts to life for your students with interactive music and movement!
Children learn about the water cycle, sound vibrations, dinosaurs, photosynthesis, clouds and lightning, gravity, states of matter, their own human bodies, the life cycle of a butterfly and more by interacting with these concepts through high energy music and movement activities.
Then it’s instrument time! Children will play shakers, bells, scrapers, triangles and drums to make rhythmic songs and play rhythm games with the included Rhythm Sound Cards.
There is a Song Card for each of the songs and activities with step-by-step instructions to guide teachers as they present the music activities.
Teaching Science Using Interactive Music
With these science songs for preschool, children will learn all about science while enjoying the fun and enrichment of interactive music and movement.
Subjects include the water cycle, sound vibrations, photosynthesis, gravity, lightening, states of matter, the life cycle of a butterfly and more.
Science concepts come alive for the students when they explore the wonders of nature by moving and interacting with the subject matter.
The Benefits of Music in Science Education
Interactive science songs for preschool that include preschool science concepts helps to activate the natural scientific curiosity of young children. Children learn science facts, concepts, laws and theories by directly interacting with the concepts through music and movement activities. For preschool age children, playing and learning are one and the same. Music is a pleasurable and motivating experience for young children. We combine play and learning opportunities that make the science enrichment a natural byproduct.
Being is Better Than Seeing for Learning and Retention
Seeing an illustration of the life cycle of a butterfly has far less impact on a child’s learning than when the child physically acts out the stages of the cycle along with her peers.
The same goes for the concepts of gravity, photosynthesis, the states of matter, lightening, the water cycle, dinosaurs, animals’ diets and habitats sound vibrations and the processes of the body.
Learning science concepts through interactive music
When children are introduced to science concepts (as well as all other educational concepts) through interactive music and movement activities, their ability to retain knowledge and understanding of the material is greatly increased.
Connecting learning with music greatly improves children’s memory and recall.
Research studies from John Hopkins University show that when music is combined with children’s learning it improves the student’s memory and recall of the material being studied.
Boosts Children’s Mood and Enjoyment
Participation in interactive music and movement will improve children’s mood, reduce their stress level and increase their enjoyment.
Music Learning activities help to solidify basic vocabulary and foundational science concepts.
Unlike traditional learning music and movement provides a fun and memorable educational opportunity for children.
