It will help them understand their unit better as well. There are 4 simple songs the students will learn easily.
There are 48 roles, but it is easy to adapt to a smaller class.
Three mad scientists overhear a group of students talking about their family history and how they do not care about it. The scientists try to convince the students their family history is important and end up taking them on an adventure back in time in a time machine to visit their ancestors. At the end of the play the students learn the importance of family history.
