When the astronomy book asks you to put on a play to help you remember the discovery of a planet.
It's also what happens when you rope your little brother into playing a part. :)
Here are two short chunks of a completely unscripted play. We read a rough outline of the story to T and this is the resulting performance--unedited to document real life. ;)
(They crack me up.)
*A few astronomy notes: Uranus was discovered by William and Caroline Herschel--professional musicians with an avid interest in astronomy. Comets tend to follow an elliptical path around the sun, while planets have a more circular orbit. Oh, and planets often look like discs in the sky (referred to by T as a CD and then a CD player.) :)
