‘I Love Charts’ from Sid the Science Kid

Posted to Miscellaneous  |  Nathan Yau

It’s good to see PBS is teaching strong values to grow up with with Sid the Science Kid and this lovely chart song (below). A chart is a handy dandy scientific tool…it gives you information that you can see with your eyes…a chart that you visualize…you get the picture… so do I… Best kid song ever.

Have a nice weekend all.
