Bitesize Space Science The life cycle of stars

Science presenter and rapper Jon Chase explains how the dust and gas released from dying stars form new stars and solar systems using a Jenga game and a rap. He visits a school where the students play Jenga to demonstrate the balance between the forces in a star, and how they destabilize over time. Jon performs a rap to help memorize all the different stages of the life cycle of stars. Teacher notes: This video can be used as a starting point to discuss the life cycle of a star.
