TASP – the fuel inside the sun

An oldie but definitely a goodie: middle school science teacher and blogger Ms Frizzle wrote a song about hydrogen, to the tune of “Jingle Bells”.

Hydrogen, hydrogen
Atomic number one
Oh what a bang it is to be the fuel inside the sun
Hydrogen, hydrogen
atomic number one
Oh what a bang it is to be the fuel inside the sun

In its nucleus
is a proton by itself
an electron spins nearby
in its closest shell.
Hydrogen’s a gas,
very low in weight.
What fun it is to read and sing an atom song tonight!

Hydrogen, hydrogen
Atomic number one
Oh what a bang it is to be the fuel inside the sun
Hydrogen, hydrogen
atomic number one
Oh what a bang it is to be the fuel inside the sun

Two hydrogens can bond
with a single oxygen
to make a molecule
called “water” by its friends.
This non-metal is burned
making stars so bright.
What fun it is to read and sing an atom song tonight!
