Here comes Science is based on the album of the same name by “They Might Be Giants” band. Through the ingenious songs of this band, we will open the door of science for students and they will develop a true love for it. This class is audiovisual with lots of art and science explorations. We will touch upon the Elements, the Body and its functions, paleontology, the planets and the sun, photosynthesis, cells, states of matter, physics, the color spectrum, computer assisted design and ecology as the main lesson. At the end of the semester, children will proudly present their work in our Showcase.
I suggest you buy a copy of the album (which includes both the music and a DVD). It is perfect for the car rides and to reinforce what we learn. The price is $9.82 in Amazon.
