To be or not to be, that is the question.
Friends, Romans, countrymen: lend me your ears.
You know you want to.
Who can resist the impulse to strike a pose and recite these and other famous lines?
Your production will be really tiny. You use fingers puppets and small paper sets to “stage” your plays. Your $15 gets you a 96 page “folio” of scenes, dialogue, backdrops and 60 character cards.
But I started thinking. Maybe social studies teachers could use the very cool finger puppets, sets and props to re-enact actual historical events.
Why not use the cards (and ones your kids create) and sets (and those your kids create) as a way to encourage research and to promote writing skills? What about the Continental Congress of 1776? The Lewis and Clark expedition? Treaty of Versailles? Civil Rights Movement?
