"War of the Words (And Numbers)" is a Broadway-style musical that features the ultimate showdown between Language Arts and Mathematics. Students take on the roles of letters and numbers, experiencing first-hand the dilemma of which is more important in the world around them. Who will be crowned the winner?
Topics covered: real-world applications of mathematics, reading, writing, and speaking, values of friendship, acceptance, and standing up for what is right
Each play lasts about 30 minutes. You receive a downloaded script and musical files, including "learning" tracks with vocals, and "karaoke" versions for performance. Both are licensed for unlimited duplication for your class. All our plays are for students anywhere from 2nd through 6th grade, classes ranging from 10 to 40 students, and teachers who may have no background in putting on a play!
The songs are not cheesy, but catchy, and not just some guy on a little Casio keyboard who's never actually been in a classroom before. Each play correlates with national/state standards in both a core content area, such as Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Health, or Science, as well as a Performing Arts area, such as Music or Theater.
