Hooking up words and phrases and clauses...

Ask anyone who grew up in the 1970s in America about grammar, arithmetic or even the legislative process and they're likely to hum a snatch of song from Schoolhouse Rock.

Not so much as a television programme as a series of animated shorts set to catchy music, Schoolhouse Rock was designed to teach children in the USA while they watched mindless cartoons on Saturday mornings. They were sneaky about it - tucked in amongst the commercials were these 3-minute shorts which were educational and fun.

Making learning fun and memorable, what a novel concept!

Blah, blah, blah...

Multiplication Rock

It all started with maths.

Grammar Rock

My personal favourites...

America Rock

Shot heard 'round the world, it was the start of the revolution...

Science Rock

Odd that I can't remember much of these...
