When I taught General Music Classes in school, I always seemed to need a kind of culminating event to wrap all of the curriculum goals into a finished project. So what if we learned some songs and how to read some notation, and play some instruments and learned something about history or culture? Unless we could do a performance of some kind, all of those goals just seemed to fizzle and lose momentum. These classroom Musicals are designed to meet this need on as high or low a level as the teacher desires. They could even be done as part of a Chorus Concert, in a Drama Class, or for a Home School Co-Op Enrichment Activity, or in the regular School Classroom.
The packets include a Lesson Plan and Student Activity sheets, along with the Teacher's Script, Reproducible Scripts, Lead Sheets to the Songs, and a link to get MP3 files with both Guide Performances and Accompaniment Tracks. Piano/Vocal Scores to the songs are available separately. The scripts are geared to fit two general age-ranges: K-3rd grades and 4th-6th grades.
