Nowadays, the interdisciplinary position of science is at the forefront. For this reason, attention is drawn to the use of different disciplines in the teaching of science. The aim of this study is to get the opinions of secondary school students about the science lesson taught with educational songs and to examine the effect of the implementation on the attitudes of the students. The research model of the study is a mixed method in which qualitative and quantitative patterns are combined. The study was conducted with 12 middle school 6th grade students (6 girls, 6 boys) studying in a public school in the 2020-2021 academic year. In the study, educational songs were used in the teaching of the science course "Solar system and eclipses" unit. The implementation was carried out for a total of five hours in four weeks. The qualitative data collection tools of the study were semi-structured interviews and student diaries; the quantitative data collection tool is the attitude scale developed by Biçer (2011) with a reliability of 0.89. Semi-structured interview and attitude scale were applied to the students before and after the implementation. Student diaries were filled in by the students during the implementation. In data analysis, qualitative data were analyzed using content analysis. Quantitative data were analyzed using the Wilcoxon signed-rank test in the SPSS program. The collected data were analyzed and interpreted. As a result of the study, the students found the science lesson, accompanied by educational songs, enjoyable and stated that it provided the opportunity to repeat the subject. In addition, it was determined that the science lesson, which was taught with educational songs, caused a positive change in the attitudes of secondary school students towards the science lesson.
