Shadow Puppetry 

- Playwriting


Use shadow puppets and shadow play to enrich writing literacy and storytelling. In pairs or small groups, students are inspired by shadow puppets to collaboratively write dialogue for the plot of a short scene. Students then present the original drama with the shadow puppets while practicing prosody in dramatic reading, exploring the technical and expressive aspects of puppeteering.


This lesson uses puppetry as an arts-integrated educational drama strategy providing opportunities for students to construct knowledge through movement, sound and imaginative play.

Story in a Bag 

- Dramatic Story Structure


Explore collaborative storytelling through improvisation. Following the Story Spine, students are guided by the teacher-as-narrator in creative play to invent character, dialogue and action for the plot within a setting. The lesson provides opportunities for students to construct knowledge through movement, spoken language, and imaginative play.
