Rap Of The Solar System
From Plank Road Publishing
by John Riggio
An Out-Of-This World Teaching Resource
What a great way to explore our solar system! Music is one of the strongest teaching tools - once you've learned something in a song, you are much more likely to remember what you've learned. This intriguing rap teaches about the planets in their order moving away from the sun as well as helping to teach about other things in and around our solar system, from moons to asteroids and comets. There is also a section on our efforts in space exploration so far. The Teacher's Handbook includes the entire rap with full accompaniment, as well as teaching suggestions, staging ideas, and ideas for customizing the rap. It also includes several important reproducibles, including a complete Student Part (with rights to reproduce parts for every student, no matter how many you have) as well as other resources for teaching this unit across the curriculum. It's a great way to teach rhythms, grab the interest of hard-to-reach singers, and get classroom teachers more involved with your music program.
