INT. CLASSROOM – DAY
 


Elementary students talk in groups as the teacher shuffles
through papers at her desk. One student sits alone. The BELL
SOUNDS.

TEACHER
Alrighty everyone, to your seats, please. I have a special lesson planned for today based on the history that took place in this very town!

The students settle in at their desks.

TEACHER (CONT’D)
Before we begin, I’d like to welcome our new student, Abigail. The class turns to the student who was sitting alone. Abigail’s family just moved back to Plymouth from Florida. Let’s make her feel at home, can we say hello?

CLASS
Hi Abigail.

ABBY

Umm, actually everyone just calls me Abby.

CLASS


Hi Abby.

TEACHER
Alrighty, now let’s get to it. Today we’re gonna learn about Plymouth Rock and the history that took place in our own backyard.

WILL

You mean the rock in the cage downtown?

TEACHER
Hey, Will, let’s try raising our hand next time before asking a question, ok? But yes, I’m talking about the rock on the waterfront, and it’s not in a cage. It’s a monument. Have you all visited the rock before?

Most of the students nod.

TEACHER (CONT’D)

Do you all know the story behind the Plymouth Rock?

Fewer students nod. 
TEACHER (CONT’D) Well, it’s ok if you don’t, because we’re all going on a field trip to visit the rock!
EXT. PLYMOUTH ROCK - DAY
The class gathers around their teacher and the group looks down at Plymouth Rock.

TEACHER
So, I’m sure you’ve all been here before, but would you believe this big rock hasn’t always been in this spot?

STUDENT 1
It hasn’t? How can a rock move?

TEACHER
We’ll get to that. First, we have to look back into history for the answer.

Song #1: Secrets To Tell

WILL
Whoa, did the rock just talk?

PLYMOUTH ROCK
No, I just sang.
