As with all the science in song music, the elements song also teaches function as well as name.

Included are the stories of Galileo, Newton and his third law,states of matter, Roy G Biv, and Neil Armstrong. In this fun song students stand in a circle, with left hand up and right hand down, resting hands on bottom and top of those to both sides. As the song plays they gently slap their left hand onto the person to their right's left hand. (I'm sure the students know this game!) The last person to be slapped when the song ends is "out". I set the song to repeat continually, until only one person is left- the winner!
