One of the best ways to have students learn a new concept or/and vocabulary is through songs and chants. The rhythmic beat and familiar tune are ways students memorize and understand new concepts. This is particularly useful when introducing and a new science unit. Along with my Life Cycle Big Book, these songs and chants are a great addition. There are three I've created and the parts that are highlighted are vocabulary to go over with your students. Make copies for your students to keep with them and practice and create a classroom book for students to look at throughout the year. This is a fun and effective way for students to learn!
