As such, Arthur must write new laws of the land (expository), settle a dispute about the kingdom's seal (persuasive), and craft the Royal Stories (narrative). Terrified that he will fail at his first royal duties, Arthur turns to his teacher and mentor for help. Merlin sends him on a quest to find the Crystal Horn for focus, the Tail Feathers of the Profuse Peacock for elaboration and support, and the Methodical Map of Makesense for organization. Equipped with these magical items and the knowledge that each represents, Arthur successfully begins his reign with the motto: "The pen is mightier than the sword (in the stone)."

With the gigantic jaws from a 20 foot long Great White Shark, your students see how sharks continually grow and replace their teeth.

A 45 minute version for schools, libraries and other mid-size venues. An expanded one hour theatrical version is available for theaters and performance arts centers. Kidbucks Game Show Kidbucks game show is a thrilling game show where randomly selected members of the audience, participate in wild and crazy games. Unlike many "trivia based" game shows where contestants ring a bell and answer a question, Kidbucks is an "action" based game in which the contestants are competing in challenging and entertaining games of a physical nature. The final winner is the Grand champion and spends 30 seconds inside the kidbucks wind chamber. The chamber is a plexiglass box in which a large fan circulates "Kidbucks". As the bucks swirl about the chamber the contestant grabs as many as he or she can. The bucks are tallied and redeemed for a prize based on how many bucks are collected.
