 Let's Put on a Puppet Show! 

 This magical workshop introduces students to the wonderful world of puppets teaching them the basic skills of puppet making and storytelling. After hearing a story, participants create a simple puppet. Then, they are encouraged to participate in telling the story and add their puppet to the performance.  

The puppets and storytelling elements allow students to explore their imaginations, creativity, language skills, hand/eye coordination, memory recall, self-esteem, and performance talents.  In this group environment, they also learn to listen and share ideas.

 The puppets are used in small groups around a shadow screen.
