If I were still teaching, I would probably purchase a marionette from
this site to figure out how it is made......
I can see all sorts of lesson ideas.....
There is also a Resources section.
I don't usually link commercial sites... but I absolutely loved the
puppets on this site.
I think the animals marionettes are definitely do-able with kids.
Could even make imaginary beasties....
I added a link to my puppets links page.
