Greatest Americans of the 20th Century Downloadable Musical Play

Greatest Americans of the 20th Century
Bad Wolf Press
Downloadable Musical Play with Album Sheet Music

It's the greatest awards show ever seen on TV, for the greatest Americans of the 20th century! Statesmen, artists, athletes, musicians, scientists, and many more are honored in a prime-time presentation (complete with commercials). Where else can you see Henry Ford rap? Students are introduced to many of the major figures in modern American history in a fun and tuneful show.

The Wright Brothers, Rosa Parks and M.L. King, Georgia O'Keefe, Louis Armstrong, and Cesar Chavez all win awards. Backstage interviews take us behind the scenes as Teddy, FDR, and Eleanor duke it out for "favorite Roosevelt," and Babe Didrikson and Babe Ruth compete for Best Athletic Babe.

  *30-minute musical play for grades 3-8
  *Includes the script, teacher's guide, and vocal & instrumental versions of each song
  *Simple to do - no music or drama experience needed!
