Lesson Directions

 

Anticipatory Set/Hook

Ask the students what the world’s worst puppet show would look like? What could go wrong? How can we avoid these things? Have students give examples of what can go wrong. Have students give examples of what a good performance would look like.

 

Instruction

STEP 1:
Group Practice- Have students get into their groups and start rehearsing their puppet show. Set up an area for a stage and have the students each take turns rehearsing on the stage.

 

STEP 2:
Individual practice- Walk around to each group and make sure they are using different voices for each character.

 

STEP 3:
Performance- Have the students sign up for a puppet performances slot on the board.
(This may carry on to the next class period.)
