My kids loved doing this musical! I originally wrote it for an entire grade level, but I have taught it with just my class as well.
All the speaking parts are laid out, and it gives many opportunities for speakers to have a turn. The humorous ‘Geeky’ scientists that are so over- zealous they interrupt to share their knowledge add as bit of comic relief.
The musical is meant to focus on the fact that so many of us bring traditions and cultures to America and we still have the focus of family and caring. Many cultures and nationalities are represented.
This musical takes us through the beginnings of our country to present day- from American Indians to present day.
