Reviewer Comments:

This lesson plan on researching puppets from around the world gives some background information to guide teachers. The rubric is complete and guides the students in their process of obtaining information. Specific links to world maps, or history of puppetry would be beneficial. Directions about designing original puppets would make this an even better resource for fine arts or classroom teacher.
