Recently, our 3rd-5th graders have been exploring the big question, “How can we tell stories in our art?”
We learned about traditions of shadow puppetry from around the world. Shadow puppetry allows for a unique combination of craftsmanship and theatrical storytelling.
Below are some photos of students in the process of creating shadow puppets and performing their shadow puppet plays. Our students came up with some really creative puppets!
