School House Rocks

I am doing a lesson plan/paper on sequential relationships and how to use that teaching strategy in teaching a new concept to my students in a history class....this is just homework right now!

I decided to write on how a bill becomes a law....so I went Internet surfing. I mean I remember the basics, but government isn't my strongest forte!

Guess what I found??? Those of you younguns won't remember, but us "older" generation will....I found youtube and videos of School House Rocks. Remember? These used to be on Saturday mornings...

So sit back and enjoy a brief 3 minute journey to the past...

They did a remake video of all the top 30 classics, and even a new one about the electoral college. My son was probably four when we got it, and, no kidding, learned his multiplication tables right then and there. Whoa, that's some good stuff!

Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day and sharing your cool mountain climbing in Singapore story. Yea for you! I have been to Singapore, but not on a mountaintop!
