Puppetry. Tabletop Moviemaking Professional Development workshop. The Best Resources For Using Puppets In Class.

In both cases, students read short texts that demonstrated the literary elements present in a short story; watched videos of of international stories that re-emphasized the same outline; watched some videos of puppet shows; worked in small groups to develop a story, storyboard, and puppet show; first created “practice” paper puppets that were made in minutes; then created paper-mache ones that took days to complete; made a “backdrop” for their show; performed for the class and then went to a nearby elementary school to present it. Both times the shows were video-taped and reviewed afterwards. Sometime during this unit students also went to the computer lab to do some online puppet activities. Related.
