LESSON PLAN

REMEMBERING THE PLANETS IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
The majority of the children love to sing at the elementary level. Through the magical power of music, we can empower children with the knowledge they need to succeed in school. Remembering the names of the nine planets can be difficult, but when it is converted into a song, it becomes fun, and very easy to learn. They will never forget it. Teach it and you will see what I mean!
