Take a look at the Grade 4 shadow plays.  Students created their own version of  story by using ideas from well known Fairy Tales, such as, “The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf,” “The Three Billy Goats Gruff,” and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”   Students also used musical instruments to introduce each of their shadow puppets for dramatic effect.   To help them understand this concept, students learned about, “Peter and the Wolf,” which is unique as the story is narrated by incorporating musical instruments to identify each character in the story.  Students created the shadow puppet play as this unit is covered  in, “The Light and Shadows,” unit.
