Making Puppets

LESSON 6-Making Puppets


Educational Objective: Students will execute the designs they made by crafting their puppets and practicing their vocal patterns.



  • Glue Sticks
  • Tons of colorful paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Brown paper lunch bags for each student


Hook: I feel like having the knowledge that they get to craft a lot is hook enough!


Step: Setup tables so that each cast can work together to use the supplies and create their puppets.


This will most likely take the whole class period, but check to make sure that they have also finished their scripts.  The scripts are more important than having finished puppets for the performances.


Step: Make sure they know that their designs for voice and puppets are due next time (preview day).
