The video Singing in Science was a unique way for students to learn biology topics. Mrs. Richard explained exactly how she made the song and how to make it “hook”. This is a great way to help students remember things such as mitosis in the video. Having a catchy tune that sticks with them and really helps them understand the material.

I see students seeing words to songs every day. They remember the words and the melody because of the rythym. I love this idea to teach science concepts and I bet that students would remember this song and concept for years! Having students design lyrics would be an additional way to build on this concept and use in future years.

I thought remembering scientic terms is like hard work but in this way, students are able to learn and remember them with fun. Body movement is connected with their memory work so they will not forget them easily.

Thank you for sharing this great video!
