n a nutshell this is a singing science text for understanding the concepts of Life Science using traditional, patriotic and camp tunes of long ago. This program is highly effective for students who are listening-auditory as well as verbal-auditory in their learning modalities. Also a great way for everyone to learn the science concepts presented in these wonderful books and CD's.

We used more old tunes like "Shenandoah," "Boll Weevil," and even Sousa's "Washington Post March" to help you learn foundational geologic information. To help you better understand the earth's surface and how its concepts fit together, we organized the eighteen songs and chapters into three groupings:

1-Building up the crust and moving it around
2-What the crust is made of
3-Wearing down the crust

Learning science can be like learning a new language, and this method has proven to help learners. Based on research in learning theory and how the brain processes, stores, and retrieves information - the dual-brain system and multi-modal teaching, using novelty and increased emotional involvement, association and "chunking," repetition, rhyme, rhythm, and visual imagery - and based on the experience of teachers and students, using lyrics and music is an effective way to teach and learn.
