This 9 page Solar System Play is one I wrote for my class as an end of the year performance for parents and students. It's filled with good scientific information about the sun, moons, planets and other space objects but even better, it's entertaining and fun!
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.
The play comes with Director's Notes which detail simple costume suggestions, casting tips, props, and more.
There are 30 parts included in this play, but you can tailor the number to fit your class needs.You can also use this as a class activity (Reader's Theatre) during a solar system science unit if you wish.
The running time for this play is about 20 -25 minutes, which is a perfect amount of time for 3rd - 6th graders.
My classes have really enjoyed this play and I hope yours do too!
