History Songs Kit w/ CD
This kit from Audio Memory has us singing along to 11 songs that teach over 100 dates and events from our nation's past. Lyrics tell of happenings from the first voyage of Columbus up to the Persian Gulf War. The accompanying 24 page booklet provides a printed version of the lyrics, along with drawings and photographs of the events. Music contains full orchestration and attempts to capture the spirit of the era -for instance, a Spanish style for Columbus and the explorers from Spain. This kit could be your child's "oral timeline" of U.S. history.
The "Sing a Song of Presidents" has various songs sung by a man and kids that give information on all the presidents, though the recording is not done nearly as well as the "U.S. President's March". Some of the songs are harder to understand till the words are learned for the songs.
