Have you ever learned something through a song? Well Ms. Noonan, a West Bend East science teacher, teaches her students the “Cell Song” to the tune of “Under the Bridge” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I had Ms. Noonan for Biology my sophomore year here at East, and I still can remember our class learning and playing the instruments to help us learn. She is nice enough to bring in her son’s toy instruments so that her students can use them to perform and get extra credit. Yes, I did say extra credit! She gives you points to sing and perform this in front of the class!
This year one of her students took it to the extreme and composed his own song to fit the lyrics of the “Cell Song”. Then, three students performed the song in front of the class. It was nice to hear a different ensemble of music for this song that helps kids learn about cells. Also, it is nice that other students are getting involved in their classrooms.
Here you can see the students perform their song!
