Thanks to Elliot Reuben who points out that when it comes to singing about science, us Brits aren’t being left behind. Behold Amoeba to Zebra, the educational music entertainment brainchild of Leeds-based pop rockers Being 747.

They say:

“As a band, we all share a fascination with the wonders of the natural world and the evolutionary processes that have shaped the flora and fauna of our planet. We decided to use our combined creative talents to do something truly worthwhile – to tell an incredible story that will stimulate the imagination of young people and leave a lasting impression”

Amoeba to Zebra are available to play at schools – see their website for details.

    Wow, I love this. If it’s still available in the spring, I totally want to show it to my classes when we start to discuss vertebrates.

    Can we possibly be this dumb? We came from a fish that eats crap off the bottom of the sea?

    Oh, and the evidence is so obvious because it has a backbone just like us. And we have a tailbone… this is literally dumber than – forget it… why even bother?

    Ignorance is bliss. Enjoy the bliss!
