Re: Rennaisance Projects?

Good ideas! I got the book, I think it is called "In the Days of Dukes and
Damsels?" check the Sax catalogue.

I was thinking of the typical castle, knight, illuminated letters, etc. but
wanting to give them a tweak. I thought about having the kids make a castle
puppet theatre and using a method of foam and old turtlenecks I got from an OAEA
workshop I attended, thought they could make these muppet like puppets and
present their own shows.

Also, I got this really cool rainbow paper which is corregated, combed, and
other brilliant colored paper to go with, and a paper krinkler, to create some
hanging dragon sculptures.

I, too, will have a student teacher, so I am hoping she will come up with some
good ideas. Will pass on what I do and what works and doesn't.
