An Incipient Case of Puppetmania
Getting Started

This issue of Art to Zoo demonstrates that the ancient art form of puppetry can be a very effective means of integrating creative activities – writing, acting, crafts – with the traditional core of academic studies. Includes background information on types of puppets, the ways they move, and ideas for making puppets.

Note: This is an archival publication dating back to 1979 and any supplements or suggestions for off-site education may not be available.
