Visual literacy is a strong focus with this program. Students are introduced to China through its rich puppetry history. Students view puppets and replicas from the Center's global museum collection with open Q & A and discussion. Short video clips, visual aids, and a hands-on puppet building activity make this an engaging learning activity great for your classroom. Great program for CHINESE NEW YEAR! 2D puppet design for 2nd & 3rd grade (50 minutes)/ 3D design for 4th -12th grades (60 minutes).
