Is There Life On Mars?
From Plank Road Publishing
by John Riggio and Teresa Jennings
Here's the perfect "Opportunity" to bring "Spirit" into your classroom with this timely and relevant song. With all the recent attention paid to the exploration of Mars, including the successful landing of the Mars Exploration Rovers, you can emphasize the value of music in bringing the subject more alive for the students.
Classroom teachers will appreciate this cross-curricular focus on a scientific subject, so be sure to let them know you have this in your repertoire. This song has an air of mystery and majesty combined with ethereal, out-of-this-world synths and sound effects. In addition, it includes a simple chanted rap, which might be just the thing for some of those older boys you've been trying to inspire. Your students won't space-out with this song!
