This Solar System Play is an original script I wrote for my class as an end of the year performance for parents and students but it may also be used as a space review! It's filled with good scientific information about the sun, moons, planets, and other space objects, but even better, it's entertaining and fun!

Specifically, it includes:

8 Page Play

5 Pages of Teacher Notes which describe simple costume suggestions, casting tips, props, suggested songs, and more.

Summary of the Play:

The Sun thinks he/she is the most important thing in the Solar System and isn't afraid to let everyone know it. With the guidance of each planet, (including Venus, the diva and Saturn, the surfer) and each solar system object, the Sun realizes in the end, that each planet, moon, asteroid, comet, etc. has value.

There are 30 parts included in this play, but you can tailor the number to fit your class needs. The running time for this play is about 20 -25 minutes.
