Traditional Christmas Songs and Science
As the holiday season approaches, I am reminded of some of the songs that I recorded with the group, Science Explosion. All of the songs that we sang were written by group member Fred Ribits. Many of the songs were written to familiar tunes and some of them were written to the tunes of traditional Christmas songs.
In this podcast I will share three of the songs. If you enjoy them and want to share them with others, just visit:
There you will be able to listen to and download the vocal and instrumental tracks for the songs. You will also be able to download a Science Explosion songbook that includes the lyrics, critical thinking questions, and mind-mapping opportunities for each song.
The three songs are most appropriate for elementary and middle school students.
1. The first song will be a life science song entitled “Energy Flow” (1:13) written to the tune of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
2. It will be followed by another life science song, “Natures Way” (1:00), written to the tune of “Jingle Bells.”
3. The final song is a science practices and concept song entitled “Creative Expression” (1:14) written to the tune of “What Child Is This?”
