The Animaplates workshops in my grade 5/6 class were a success. The kids were able to create beautiful original puppets and to present children’s stories to the primary grades. The kids were so proud of their creations! Since I teach French immersion class, this experience has really given the students a chance to express themselves in French (without being embarrassed because they were hidden behind a puppet). This workshop integrated French as a second language, drama and visual arts in an exciting creative project. What a success!
