Another wonderful musical from Bad Wolf Press - perfect for third grade! Dramatic device of bees needing to choose a new form of government for their hive enables the other characters (e.g., spiders, owls, branches) to teach the audience while teaching the bees. Clever script contains many teaching opportunities (e.g., word play, academic/content vocabulary) and humor appeals to audiences of all ages, from "here's the buzz" for kindergarteners to "that's been tried --- it's called Berkeley" for their parents. Ensemble format gives every student their moment in the spotlight. You can't go wrong with The Beehive!
