Mama, why is the sun hot?


If you aren't familiar with They Might Be Giants and their "Here Comes Science" album, it's time to hop on board!  Of course, they've done lots of kid albums, but there is just something about their quirky, punky rhythms and lyrics that have always cheered me up.  And I'm a grown up.  My husband thinks he would have gotten a lot more out of school if they'd taught science through songs like this... I tend to agree!   June loves "the sun song" and so do we.  So we had to share one of favorite creative ways to teach using story and song with you all.  Enjoy our science lesson for the week.  Oh- you can get the album on i-tunes and see more of the videos on YouTube.
