Life Cycles

This play is funny while still teaching about ecosystems. It is very appropriate for second grade students. Unfortunately, one verse in the "Metamorphosis" song has the original lyrics on the recording and different (updated) lyrics in the script. If the recording could be updated, this would be a five star play for my second grade class.

Life Cycles

We really enjoyed producing this musical. There aren’t that many lines (outside of the songs) for the kids to memorize, so it made it possible for all of my students to have speaking parts they could access. The vocabulary they learned was fantastic and I enjoyed almost all the songs.



The only thing I will cut when I do it again is the Offspring song...I didn’t feel like it (nor the lines that came before it) explained the idea of shared characteristics as it was intended to do.

Life Cycles

This musical play was perfect for bringing science content to life for my students! They loved learning the songs and action our the dialogue. Throughout our play rehearsal process, we had important conversations about scientific vocabulary and the life cycles of various plants and animals. The music is very catchy and, overall, this was a great, learning experience!
