I am an 8th grade physical science teacher and spend over one semester teaching students about properties of matter and them move into the beginnings of chemical bonding.

I create science song parodies to help students connect ideas as part of the "meaning" stage of the process, F (Focus or brainstorming) E (Experimentation/Exploration) R (Reflection/Meaning A (Application to our world).
