Bad Wolf Press is an ingenious company that creates original plays for schools, churches, civic groups and homeschool groups to perform. Combining learning or thinking concepts with theatrical presentations is a powerful way to embed the information into a child’s memory, develop public speaking skills and have fun all at the same time!
Now, Bad Wolf Press is offering a Science Curriculum, “Matter and Its Properties.” It provides the following information, to help children become familiar with these concepts:
• What matter is
• Properties of matter
• Composition of objects from particles, which can be combined in different ways to make new objects with potentially
• States of matter (solid, liquid, gas)
• Arrangement of particles in each state
• Changes in state
• Boiling, melting, freezing points
• Evaporation and condensation
• Reversible and irreversible change
Matter and Its Properties is a great supplement to whatever your curriculum is in physical science. Coupled with the other skills that are developed in rehearsing and performing a play, Matter provides an exceptional learning vehicle for any homeschooler and homeschool group.
Of course, Bad Wolf offers a complete line of appropriate plays (and guidance for parents/teachers) for young actors and actresses, providing the same array of skill development mentioned above – reading, comprehension, memorization, working with a team, public speaking and movement in one central activity that is also entertaining to families and friends!
