|Yeti shadow puppet by Owly.|
This lesson was inspired by these awesome shadow puppets - owlyshadowpuppets.etsy.com which I showed the students to help them with their ideas.
Grade 6 students made these shadow puppets from thick cardboard and split pins (they really moved!) based on their own designs of mythical creatures. They took a bit of work and by the time we finished them there was no time for a puppet show :(. But, they were so cool! and I think it really helped them understand positive and negative space.
