Learning with Puppets: Activity Ideas for Grades 1-4.
Chase, Cheryl M.
This booklet is one of a series developed by the Northern Colorado Educational Board of Cooperative Services to make available to teachers ideas designed and tested by other teachers. The activities are gathered from educational journals as well as from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). The first section of the booklet contains activities for making four basic types of puppets. Since puppets can be fairly difficult to make, it is suggested that the art teacher assist in these projects. The second, larger section focuses on the use of puppets as an effective learning device. The activities are designed to motivate students to express themselves, to facilitate growth in the listening and speaking phases of language development, and to encourage communication and cooperation among class members.
