Science Songs and Music Videos

Updated on September 18, 2018

Not Just For Kids!

Science songs are an easy, fun, and effective way to teach kids of all ages about science! Isn't it impressive when you hear a child sing a tune filled with educational lyrics?

One of the first songs kids learn is the ABCs. It would be difficult for many young children to memorize 26 of anything. But add melody and rhythm, and learning becomes play!

Children's brains need sensory stimulation in order to grow properly. The common senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, touch and also movement, when used together, produce the best learning environment. If there is a learning disablity in one part of the body, the other senses can oftentimes compensate for each other.

Music, dancing, clapping and instrument playing, when combined with educational content, is a successful way to motivate kids to learn and help keep them focused.

In the late 1950's and early 1960's, Hy Zaret and Lou Singer produced a six album set of science-themed folk songs for children. Titled Ballads for the Age of Science, they included a total of 47 songs on Hy Zaret's label "Motivation Records". Three of the albums were performed by Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans, two by Marais and Miranda, and another by Dorothy Collins. Hy Zaret wrote the lyrics and Lou Singer composed the music. These fun science tunes were also sold as the Singing Science Records.
