Shadow Puppetry in South India

Students read a variety of literature from India, including folktales and fables. They then select a scene or story to script, work together to design and craft shadow puppets of characters and scenery, narrate a story, manipulate the figures, give character appropriate voices, select or create appropriate music, and choreograph sound effects and movement.

I use Lesson Planet for supplementary activities/projects every week. I'm currently researching for a current events rubric and found several options. It's great!
