Adding Doubles

Join Ben and Lindsey on their trip to the outer reaches of the galaxy as they count stars in doubles to learn all about doubling in addition. Adding doubles is astronomical fun in this catchy math tune.

Song Lyrics:

Verses:
1 + 1 is 2 (1 + 1 is 2)
2 + 2 is 4 (2 + 2 is 4)
3 + 3 is 6 (3 + 3 is 6)
And 4 + 4 equals 8 (4 + 4 equals 8)
5 + 5 is 10 (5 + 5 is 10)
6 + 6 is 12 (6 + 6 is 12)
7 + 7 is 14 (7 + 7’s 14)
And 8 + 8 equals 16 (8 + 8 is 16)
9 + 9 is 18 (9 + 9 is 18)
10 + 10 is 20 (10 + 10’s 20)
11 + 11 is 22 (11 + 11 is 22)
And 12 + 12 is 24

Chorus:
Let’s learn how to double
on a space shuttle.
We’ll discover stars never seen by the hubble,
and count them in couples
to add the doubles.

Bridge: Now we’re touching down on land,
finding doubles wherever we can….

Two koalas in a huddle,
2 is 1 + 1’s double.
2 crabs with 4 pincers come out
of their little tunnel.
3-toed rhino feet make 6
toes making the ground rumble.
2 cats with 4 legs make 8
legs in a cuddle.

Two starfish with 5 arms
make 10 arms in a puddle.
2 ducks lay 6 eggs,
as all 12 start to rustle.
2 branches with 7 leaves make
14 as pandas chuckle .
2 octopi’s 8 arms make 16
moving near a bubble.

On the beach, 2 buckets of 9
make 18 mussels.
2 chimps’ 10 fingers make 20
hairy monkey knuckles.
11 ants on 2 hills make 22
ants that bustle.
12 frogs on each of 2 lily pads -
24 frogs croak and grumble.
