Science Songs

This is an "oldie but a goodie" song by Banana Slug String Band from the album "Dirt Made my Lunch"

"Roots, Stems, Leaves" (the song can be found on YouTube) Chorus: Roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds, Roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds, That's six parts, six parts, six plant parts, That plants and people need. Roots hold the plant in the ground, They gather up the water that falls around, There's a root inside of me Because a carrot is a root that I eat. A stem is an elevator growing up from the ground. The water goes up and the sugar back down. There's a stem inside of me, Because celery is a stem that I eat. The leaves are the kitchen where the food is done, They breathe the air and catch the rays of the sun. There's a leaf inside of me, Because lettuce is a leaf I eat. The flowers are dressed so colorfully. They hold the pollen and attract the bees. There's a flower inside of me, Because cauliflower is a flower that I eat. The seeds get buried in the earth, The cycle starts again with a new plant's birth. And there are seeds inside of me, Because sunflower is a seed that I eat. Now you know what this whole world needs, It's roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds. There's six plant parts inside of me, Because a garden salad is what I eat.

"Yippee, Hooray, I am a Sprout" by Billy B. Brennan. (The song can be found on YouTube at "Yippee, Hooray guitar instruction at qt. mov")

*It's fun to crouch down and pretend you're sprouting like a tree. Wet ground, warm sun, My life as a tree has just begun. I'm so sure, I have no doubt, That my shell has cracked and I have a sprout. I'm growing up and growing out, I'm growing up and growing out. Yippee, hooray, I am a sprout! Yippee, hooray, I am a sprout!
