Watch Schoolhouse Rock!
- 6 Seasons
It is difficult for adults and children alike to remember all the different grammatical rules and exceptions that exist as well as mathematical formulas and rules. Often times, putting things to song can be a good way to trigger a memory of these rules. Schoolhouse Rock is educational set of musical clips that are geared toward helping children and adults enjoy learning. With catchy tunes and clever lyrics, Schoolhouse Rock is a great tool to use in remembering everything from pesky grammar rules to historical events. This may initially sound like just another dry educational video. Thankfully, it?s not. While useful in educational settings, these animated videos are not only educational but highly entertaining. Each video clip is fairly short--accounting for a typical viewer's attention span. Initially airing as filler during Saturday morning cartoons this Emmy award winning show became such a hit that the videos were combined and formatted for DVD. Some fan favorites are Conjunction Junction and The Preamble are a couple of fan favorites. Schoolhouse Rock consists of six main subcategories: Multiplication Rock, Grammar Rock, Science Rock, American Rock, Money Rock and most recently Earth Rock. Multiplication Rock features videos about the power of tens, then multiplication tables all the way up to twelve.
