Rock out with this musical study of Earth’s composition and its changing nature. When Professor Rock disappears, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are on the case. Interviews with a talking volcano and the Earth reveal intriguing facts, but don’t disclose the professor’s location. Holmes and the students know they are onto something when they encounter some shady ferns, but they only get a song and dance about fossil fuels. As they run into the Sea Shore, Canyon, Valley and Mountain, they tune into the process of erosion, continental drift and the rock cycle. Even Snow White has a walk-on role with a song about the mining dwarves and their minerals and ore. The combination of geologic terminology and hilarious wit make this mystery shake, rattle and roll its way to learning. Up to 20 hours for preparation, planning, and performance. Performance time is 25 minutes. Grades 2–6. Bad Wolf.
