Untamed Science has created a number of short videos to teach students about scientific concepts and to answer many interesting questions that are based in science. Here are some of the music videos that they have made, which tie in well with what is taught in 6th and 7th grade.
Matter is brought to life in this video, which has a chorus that reinforces memorization of the definition of matter (something with mass that takes up space).
This music video shows how electricity moves through a circuit, and how the flow is stopped and started by using a switch.
Entertaining, but a bit light on the science concepts. However, this video makes for a good break as students work to build their electro-magnets.
I introduce simple machines briefly, to help students with their building of their Rube Goldberg machines, as they study about energy transformations. This video shows how handy simple machines are as they are used to help on moving day.
The Cell Song is an instructional video that provides a great analogy of four key organelles in the cell. It also shows a mini-experiment to help students see how things pass through a membrane.
This music video shows how the body’s systems work together to benefit a person.
This is a funny video that describes how plate tectonics move around.
A calm song with a folk song flavor; watch this video to learn more about the water cycle.
