Imagine children learning the human body by 'theaterizing' how it works.

Imagine children learning the human body by 'theaterizing' how it works. Imagine learning about the heart by being the heart - enacting the arterial and venal blood systems, the expansion and contraction of the lungs and the rhythmic four chambers of the heart in the center...all in movement, choreography and song. That's Human Body School.
Imagine learning about the brain and nervous system from inside out; or exploring the feeling life of the emotions and senses through a magical song called "Feeling Language". What about the bones, the internal organs, the digestive system, the senses? It all comes alive in Human Body School song by song.
The now available "Human Body School" CD is 23 songs in 3 "Acts":
Act 1 - Get To Know Your Body
Act 2 - Body Opera
Act 3 - Get To Know Yourself
Each song comes with a downloadable kit including lyrics and chords, an instrumental version, an engaging lesson plan and dance choreography ideas. Many of the songs have videos as well. Find "Human Body School Kits" here.
The visionary "Human Body School” curriculum by Songs To Educate includes essential anatomy and body systems, health and nutrition; but also engenders self-respect, self-discovery, social and emotional intelligence through a vibrant array of integrated song and movement theater.
"Words make you think a thought.
Music makes you feel a feeling.
A song makes you feel a thought."
Human Body School lends itself beautifully to performance. The teaching artists "Talking Hands Talking Feet" of Songs To Educate have performed Human Body School in many public and independent schools with between 20 and 160 children in the cast, grades 1st through 5th.
This is a curriculum based performing arts program as well as a springboard for arts integrated education activities in the classroom. Many of the songs can be used for 'brain gym' type activities stimulating brain and body fitness. But the principle reason for "Human Body School" is to engage children in learning about the marvelous human body through hands on, interactive song and movement.
Imagine this in the classroom and home as a brilliant way to teach the human body. Join Songs To Educate in the arts integrated education movement.
