BLAST Elementary Thematic Program
Fractured Fairytales & Folktales

(January and February 2005)


Furry Folktale Fun

In this program we will be sharing animal folktales from a variety of countries and cultures. Students will be given the opportunity to experiment with puppets and the story telling. This unique experience will also be paired with an activity centered on easy puppet making; students will be making their very OWN puppets to act out the story! Recommended for grades K-2.
