Shadow Puppetry (3rd Grade Art Project)

My 3rd Graders are learning about Cambodian Art. One of Cambodia’s remarkable visual and performing arts is their Shadow Puppetry. Inspired by this, the students were grouped together and were tasked to write up a very short story. They will then design the characters (and the props if there were any) and create them (with my supervision). Then they had to rehearse on their narration and delivery before I finally took a video of their production.

I must say they did a pretty good job.

Below are two examples of the groups’ work:

“The Purse”

“The 4 Boys and the Witch”
