Matter and Its Properties

This is one of my favorite plays that my class has performed because since it was a talk show the guests didn't have to have costumes. The stage set up was like the Ellen Show with little couches. My students loved this show!

Cons:

Matter is so easy to put on!

I am currently putting on the Matter show with my second grade class. It is a perfect fit for my curriculum. I was easily able to break up the longer parts, Chad and Nina, into pieces my kids could handle. Sets are a piece of cake and I am just drawing on t shirts for costumes. I have done many Bad Wolf plays in the past but this one is the easiest to produce. It would be a good starter for a teacher who has never done a musical before.

My students LOVED this play - and learned so much!

I am a long time user of Bad Wolf Press plays, and this is one of the best! My students loved the songs and learned so much about solids, liquids and gases. I was able to easily integrate science activities with the concepts addressed in the play. There are some more complex concepts for older students, but it was easy to do the play and adjust it so that younger students weren't overwhelmed by the more advanced content. All of my parents loved our performance!

Outstanding results when teaching ELD

Half of my scientists are non-native English speakers so the songs are the best way to get everyone engaged, talking, using scientific descriptions, applyging all that the properties of matter in an unforgettable rhythm. The parents have sent emails about how impressed they were with their child’s retention. It’s should be accredited entirely to Bad Wolf Press

The Science of Stuff

I am using the play, The Science of Stuff during an after-school program. It is going really well. The music was well received and catchy! It definitely hits on topics about the different states of matter, how temperature changes matter and its states and how matter has different properties that determines how we use it. I cannot wait for our performance in 2 weeks.
