Singing About Science

I love it when I see teachers getting creative about their subject matter, and it’s even better when students are learning more as a result.

Doug Edmonds, a junior high science teacher in Northbrook, IL, sings his way through lessons that he puts on YouTube.  The Chicago Tribune did a story about him – apparently his creative Karaoke performances have reached students around the world who not only find him on YouTube, but use his variations to help them study and remember scientific concepts.

Check out some of Mr. Edmonds’ stuff: The Solutions Song, The Properties Song, and The Chemical Bonds Song are some great examples.  I would have learned so much from this guy!  Thanks so much for your awesome approach, Mr. Edmonds!

Happy Friday,
