    Post by TA-DA...Teaching Activities Done Aesthetically

    You are so right when you said, "Maybe there should be music inspired techniques to inspire older children!" I teach elementary students and know the power of using music to learn. My students learn expanding numbers through songs, as well as adding fractions. They learn about fossils, when the volcano Mt. Vesuvius, and when it blew in 79 A.D. We sing about bones,and how ligaments are the strong stretchy bands that hold our bones together and that these are joints. Songs like the engineering design process helps us to solve problems of the world. Yes, music: teaches my students facts, serves as a reading resource, allows them to use the song to know write a narrative or information text, and to learn history, geography, biographies, and science as they get excited about the wonderful world that they can contribute to with their knowledge that becomes power! STEAM is a powerful part of our learning...and using music as part of the "A" for arts brings enjoyment and excitement to our classroom.
