Storytelling with shadow puppets is a great way for children to express themselves. Through the activity, children learn how to use a variety of materials, create their artwork, and interact with their peers.
I think this is a great lesson plan for younger students to be able to create a globe. Teachers are able to teach the children a lesson on how there is a lot more water on the globe then land. I loved how they used this as an activity for Earth Day.
MAORI CREATION STORY: Indigenous artist, Marcus Winter, tells the Māori creation story using Sand Art. In the Māori worldview, the world began with the violent separation of Ranginui, the Sky Father, and Papatuanuku, the Earth Mother, by their children, including Tūmatauenga (similar to Kū), Tāne (Kāne), Rongo (Lono, god of cultivated food), and Tangaroa (Kanaloa, the god of the sea).
