Have your kids asked you what the summer solstice actually means? Have you stammered through an explanation that involved the sun, and the day length, and something to do with angles? Fear not! For those of us who do not remember our fifth grade Earth Science lessons, help is just a mouse click and a catchy tune away.
We all know it is easier to remember something when it is set to music. Enter The Solstice Song, a simple musical science lesson explaining the specifics of the summer and winter solstice. This song is available as a free download at the Huckleberry Party website where both the lyrics and the guitar chords are available, so the whole family can sing and strum along.
(Full disclosure: I'm the musician behind Huckleberry Party - enjoy the song!)
