Shadow Puppets

Learning Resource Pack

Developed & written by David Pitt

This resource pack will equip you to make and use shadow puppets in the classroom, producing anything from live performances to photo books, short movies, digital slide shows and videos.

The activities outlined in this pack are a powerful way to get your class to make up stories, even if they are not confident writers. These activities can be used and adapted to address the three cross-curricular responsibilities of literacy, numeracy and digital competence. More broadly, they facilitate the teaching of subjects as diverse as science, art and history, as well as nurturing important abilities such as oracy and fine motor skills.
