Study Jams - Tunes for Studying

Study Jams is a Scholastic website designed to help elementary school students learn and review math and science information through songs and videos. To use Study Jams students search for a topic in the math or science category. Each Study Jam offers a short tutorial on that topic in the form of a video, slideshow, or song. When there is a song available Study Jams provides a karaoke format for kids to sing along if they like.

Applications for Education
Study Jams could be an engaging way for students to independently review topics or learn about new topics. To extend the activity you could challenge students to write an additional verse for one of the karaoke tunes. Or challenge them to create their own Study Jam when one doesn't exist for a topic they're studying.
