A little bit about the music classroom:

In music class students will sing, move, listen, imitate, explore, experience, analyze, classify, create, share, perform, notate, read, improvise, cooperate, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!! We strive to create innovative, engaging lesson plans which include singing, playing instruments, and moving in each of our lessons. Music is important here at Dolvin Elementary. Studies show that students who receive music perform better on tests involving reading, math, problem solving, and logical thinking.

Audition ScriptPlease pay special attention; some characters have mulitple lines!
Hipparchus: (looking up at the sky and counting the stars; jots down notes on a paper once in a while)
Seven hundred and seventy two,
Seven hundred and seventy three…
Seven hundred and seventy four…

Carl Sagan:  Hey Hipparchus! What are you counting?

Hipparchus:  Stars. What else? Seven hundred and seventy four… (confused) Oh! Did I already say that?

Sagan:  I don’t know.

Hipparchus:  Argh!! (In frustration he sighs and starts over.) One, two, three…

Sagan: Well, that’s interesting. We already know that there are billions and billions of stars out there.

Hipparchus:  Oh yeah? And who are you? Carl Sagan?

Sagan: (smiling, begins to speak in rhyme) Precisely!
          People have been counting stars before you or me,
          Even if you were born in One ninety B.C.

Galileo:
          That’s right my friends and I ought to know.
          I’ve been looking at stars from a long time ago.

Hipparchus:
          Who are you?

Galileo:
          Galileo is the name, so don’t lose hope.
          You can see a whole lot better with my telescope.

Copernicus:
          Let’s student the solar system, but no need to fuss.
          I can help you out, for I’m Copernicus!

Aristotle: (distraught)
          Aristotle here and I’ve never felt worse.
          I thought the Earth was the middle of the universe.

Sally Ride:
          That’s right, fellas! I’m an astronaut.
          And since your time, we’ve all learned a lot!

Sagan:
          We’ve learned that we all circle around the sun.
          And when it comes to moons, the Earth has only one!

Mercury:
Hi, I’m Mercury. I’m closest to the sun.
Think of me as number one.
I’m filled with craters, you must recall.
I’m hot and rocky and kind of small.
(pauses)
A year for me is 88 days.

Famous people reciting famous quotes about space.  These actors will be dressed like their character.

Albert Einstein:               The important thing is to not stop questioning. Albert Einstein.

Robert Frost:                  Freedom lies in being bold. Robert Frost

Tsiolkovsky:                     To set foot on the soil of the asteroids, to life by hand a rock from the moon,… what could be more fantastic?  Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (tsee ohl KOV skee) the Father of Russian Astronautics.

Will Rogers:                    Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if 
                                        you just sit there. Will Rogers

President Kennedy:       We choose to go to the moon in this decade, not because it is
easy but because (it’s) hard. President John F. Kennedy

LYRICS!
Blast Off!

Blast off! On a great adventure
Blast off! We’re gonna fly!
Blast off to outer space.
We’re taking off to the sky!

Blast off! To the moon and planets
Blast off! Shoot for the stars
Blast off! No stopping us.
Flying to Venus and Mars

Looking at the sun and moon,
Every day and night,
Is the chance for everyone,
To step right in to the light!
What a beautiful sight!

Blast off! On a great adventure
Blast off! We’re gonna fly!
Blast off to outer space.
We’re taking off to the sky!

We’re as different as Day and Night!

Refrain
We’re as different as day and night.
We’re as different as black and white
But in this great big galaxy
I need you and you need me.

Suns – Part 1
I’m the sun the center of the system
I’m number one, so everybody listen
I wait for all my planets to pass
I’m just a big ball of fire and gas

Refrain
We’re as different as day and night.
We’re as different as black and white
But in this great big galaxy
I need you and you need me.

Moons – Part 2
I’m the moon, I’m the moon
Oh I am the moon
Singing out my favorite lunar tune
I’m half or full, I’m crescent or new
Here’s looking at me
‘Cause I’ll be lookin’ at you

Refrain
We’re as different as day and night.
We’re as different as black and white
But in this great big galaxy
I need you and you need me.

Sing Sun and Moons parts together

Refrain
We’re as different as day and night.
We’re as different as black and white
But in this great big galaxy
I need you and you need me.

Suns sing – I need you!
Moons sing – I need you!

Meteor Shower!

Meteor shower! Meteor shower!
Meteor shower!
(Spoken) The sky is falling!

Verse 1
I’m just a grain of dust but I might appear,
Just like a streak of fire through the atmosphere
No need to be afraid. I hope that you’re not annoyed.
A burning grain of dust, I’m a meteoroid

Meteor shower! Meteor shower!
Meteor shower!
(Spoken) The sky is falling!

Verse 2
Yo! I’m an asteroid. Don’t mean to be rude.
I’m made of iron and rock, a heavy metal dude!
I circle in an orbit, Yo! I’m just like the earth.
Yet I’m too small to be a planet for whatever its worth!

Meteor shower! Meteor shower!
Meteor shower!
(Spoken) The sky is falling!

Verse 3
Hey, I’m a comet, just a dirty ball of ice
You just might see me once or you might see me twice,
My head is called a nucleus; a coma my tail.
I orbit ‘round the sun and I leave a nice trail.

Meteor shower! Meteor shower!
Meteor shower!
(Spoken) The sky is falling!

Rap of the Solar System

(Refrain)
Solar system
All the planets and the comets
All the man-made objects too
It’s our solar system
Every object held by gravity making up our cosmic stew

Start with the center
The center of the solar system
There is a sun, that gives us heat and light
It’s mostly made, of hydrogen and helium
Nuclear reactions make it burn very bright

(Refrain repeats)

The first planet,
Mercury travels very fast
Orbiting the sun in just eighty-eight days!
Venus is like the Earth
In size and gravity
But its air is poisonous, a toxic yellow haze!

(Refrain repeats)

The third planet,
Earth is our home world
It’s the only planet where we wouldn’t freeze or fry!
Fourth in line,
Mars is the red planet
The Viking space craft were sent to find out why

(Refrain repeats)

After Mars,
You’ll find a large asteroid belt
Rocks of different size and shape
Fly through their domain
The fifth planet,
Jupiter is the largest one
Its great red spot is quite a hurricane

(Refrain repeats)

The sixth planet,
Saturn has tremendous rings, made of icy rocks
Some as small as dust
The seventh planet,
Uranus rotates on its side
You’d think that it would want to readjust

(Refrain repeats)

The eighth planet,
Neptune has a blue appearance
It’s mostly gas with a small, rocky core
And sadly so,
Pluto’s not a planet anymore
It left, and went off on its own

(Refrain repeats)

Solar System Rocks!


One Small Step

One Small step is the way to start each journey.
One small step on the highway to the stars
Who knows what may come? Who knows where we’ll go?
If you join along, there’s one thing you should know.

That one small step towards the promise of tomorrow;
One small step can begin with us today.
If you dare to dream, you can take my hand.
Every dream begins when someone takes a stand

(Spoken)
That’s one small step for man;
One giant leap for mankind

One small step; come along if you believe it.
One small step together we’ll achieve,
If we do our best, the future can be ours,
Only one small step will take us to the stars.
