Don't forget the kangaroo!

Welcome back to More with Music!

I'm really enjoying the less hectic schedule of my summer break.  I'm also enjoying the nice emails I have received this week regarding my song posts here on More with Music!  Thank you to all of you who read and listen to my blog posts!

Today's post is another song post (yes!).  I'm sure you're wondering about the title of this blog post.  It is rather unusual :).
The title, "Don't forget the kangaroo", is actually a sneak peak at some of the lyrics for today's song entitled, "Vertebrates".

Students learn about all kinds of animals and their classifications in the classroom.  They learn that some animals are mammals, some are vertebrates, and some are reptiles.  Vertebrates are animals(and humans), that have at least one thing in common - they all have a backbone.

This song mentions many animals that are classified as vertebrates including:  fish, birds, alligators, monkeys, gorillas, tigers, whales, dolphins, mice, kangaroo!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
