A song used to teach students about solar eclipses.
Written in 1998 for the full solar eclipse in Maracaibo, Venezuela. When the sun was completely blocked by the moon and the birds stopped singing, the students around me broke out into song; the song I'd written for them. It was probably my best teaching moment ever!
Recorded quickly during the fun and excitement leading up to the eclipse :)
Easy to learn. Difficult vocabulary made easy.
Lyrics/sheet music (melody)
