Chinese Class and Art Class Students Pair to Design Shadow Puppets

This winter, Ms. Liao partnered with Ms. Peppard for an interdisciplinary cultural experience! Over the course of one week, Chinese and art students formed groups to learn about the art elements to make shadow puppets. Students also learned Chinese literature and shadow puppetry history in China. Students made puppets and created a story of their own. Through teamwork and collaboration, the students presented their own take of the Chinese legend Journey to the West.
