This "I Wanna Be a Rock Star" play is an original one I wrote for my class as an end of the year performance for parents and students but it is also a great activity during a rocks and minerals science unit. The play is filled with excellent scientific information about rocks and minerals, including sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks, fossils, Moh's Scale of Hardness and more! Even better, it is one that the kids love to perform and is lots of fun!
Specifically, it includes:
8 Page Original Script with 30 parts
6 Pages of Detailed Teacher Notes
Summary of the Play:
Basalt (the main character) has decided to leave the quarry to search for an agent who will help him become a rock star. Along the way, he meets each rock group, like the igneous rocks who are having a luau. During his travels, we get to know cute characters like the Geologist, a nerdy know it all, Moh, the fast talking, slick agent and Diamond the diva superstar. In the end Basalt seeks the advice of The Geode, a wise, all knowing guru, who helps him follow his dreams.
The running time for this play is about 20 -25 minutes, which is a perfect amount of time for 3rd - 6th graders.
