Did you know yesterday, March 16, marked the anniversary of Robert Goddard’s rocket ship launch? In honor of this celebration, we introduce to you a fun, science, musical journey.
Grammy-winning duo, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marker have made an educational yet catchy and fun CD all about Science called Zoom A Little Zoom: A Ride Through Science. With 10 new interpretations of tunes from Ballads for the Age of Science, a classic 1961 collection of educational science songs on such subjects as space, nature, weather and energy, and an Activity Guide featuring dozens of ideas for hands-on science fun, the album is intended to excite a new generation of scientists, engineers, and explorers.
An added bonus–The new album includes an Activity Guide for each song by Lynn Baum (former head of School Programs at the Museum of Science in Boston), downloadable from the CD. The guide, which features ideas easy to replicate at home or school using household materials, will be available for free download soon which includes vocabulary, facts, questions and activities to complete. In upcoming performances and videos, these activities will come alive – experiments and all and we can’t wait! The activity guide can also serve as a reference for science fair projects and provide answers to some science questions your Bambinos may bring home.
Songs include topics such as Vibration, Gravity, Lightning and Insects. It’s a fun way to build on your child’s knowledge and even more fun to hear your child excitedly say, “I know about this!” while the song plays.
Available March 30!
