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.
