Space School Musical, a multimedia Discovery Program from NASA, takes students on a trip through the solar system in a “hip-hopera” that uses song and dance to introduce the planets, moons, comets, asteroids, and even some rockin’ scientists and engineers—present and past—who present facts about the galaxy. From the program’s website, educators can freely download nine songs for students to sing while performing the dance routines themselves, or just to play while watching the dance videos in class. Students learn about the solar system through academic, art, fitness, and life-skills lessons. In addition to the videos and songs, the website provides teaching tips, a glossary with the terms used in the songs, and 36 activities based on the content of Space School Musical.
