The Electric Hop dives into the exciting world of electricity, in an old fashioned, '50s-style, rock n' roll musical. Negative charges (played by boys) and positive charges (played by girls) learn that the feeling of "attraction" they're suddenly getting is something called "electricity"! Can they complete a circuit, by working with their charged counterparts in time?
Topics covered: conductors and insulators, circuits, negative and positive charges, and the flow of electricity.
Each play lasts about 30 minutes. You receive a downloaded script and musical files, including "learning" tracks with vocals, and "karaoke" versions for performance. Both are licensed for unlimited duplication for your class. All our plays are for students anywhere from 2nd through 6th grade, classes ranging from 10 to 40 students, and teachers who may have no background in putting on a play!
The songs are not cheesy, but catchy, and not just some guy on a little Casio keyboard who's never actually been in a classroom before. Each play correlates with national/state standards in both a core content area, such as Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, or Science, as well as a Performing Arts area, such as Music or Theater.
