More about this lesson plan:
Materials Needed: For the teacher:
# Copy of this lesson plan, the attached activities sheet, and a copy of Connie's Story (below).
# OPTIONAL: Portable puppet theater for the presentation. A table at the front will work fine to have a focal point if you do not have a portable theater.
For the students:
# Construction paper, one piece for each lantern and various colored sheets for making the dancing dragons.
# Scissors and tape or glue; enough tape to close each child's lantern, the dragon loops, and the dragonhead. Glue will work also if you have drying time.
# Sticks or string: to hang dragons or lanterns from when the children complete their creative arts projects.
# Classroom set of People Holding Hands: TRACE, GAIL, JESSIE, and CONNIE (or other multi-cultural puppets).
