Folk songs by Phyllis Gaskins about reading, science, and social studies for children.
NOTES
Phyllis Gaskins wrote these songs (The Habitat Song was written by Jill Leaman) to help teach her second grade students about social studies, geography, reading, and science. She found that singing about the water cycle, or about Native American nations helped the children remember important concepts while having fun singing along!

The songs are performed by Brent Holl, folk singer and former teacher as well. He uses acoustic guitar, melodica, all manner of special percussion instruments, and a home made marimba. Teachers who have marimbas or Orff instruments in there classrooms will be able to create simple accompaniments for most of the songs.
