Many of the classrooms I serve in the public school setting have been learning about plants. We sing about the parts of a plant (find it here), and the needs of a plant. For our middle and high school students, we also sing about photosynthesis, (which I'll be sharing soon!). Earlier this week I recorded two additional songs about plants.
Today I'll be sharing one of those songs: Plant Adaptation.
Researching this topic was very interesting. At the same time, I found it challenging to keep the song short and simple. After many drafts, I finally finished writing the song and decided on a jazz chord progression for the accompaniment.
(Warning: This song is catchy and it may get stuck in your head!)
The repetitive chorus is intended to help students learn the main idea: plants adapt in order to live.
The chorus can also be used to engage students who use a voice output device. They can sing along with this repetitive part if it is prerecorded on their device.
Stay tuned for another song about plants next week!
