Government & Citizenship: How Democracy Came to the Beehive Musical Play

Government & Citizenship: How Democracy Came to the Beehive
Bad Wolf Press
Downloadable Musical Play with Album Sheet Music

Queen Bee's announcement has the whole hive reeling: she's outta there! To take the sting out of her sudden flight, she's brought in consultants to help the hive decide on a new governmental model. Though terrified at first, our clever bees soon embrace the challenge and delve into the wonders of representative democracy.

Key concepts include

  • What does a government do and why do we need one? (insert jokes here)
  • Types of government (monarchy, dictatorship, direct democracy, representative democracy)
  • Constitutions and what they do
  • Three branches of government
  • Levels of government (federal, state, and local)
  • Function of local government (insert more jokes)
  • Good citizenship

  *25-minute musical play for grades 1-5
  *Includes the script, teacher's guide, and vocal & instrumental versions of each song
  *Simple to do - no music or drama experience needed!
