Today was an all day field trip with my Grade 1 Friends. We travelled by bus and attended several venues at the Children's Festival. What an amazing place! There was so much to see and do, we could not possibly get in everything we wanted to. One thing I did want to take in was a puppet show based on three stories by Eric Carle (Little Cloud, The Mixed Up Chameleon, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar). We had studied the work of Eric Carle as one of our authors of the month and this show promised to be a great way to enjoy his stories. They use fluorescent paint and black lights to make the puppets stand out against the black background. The puppeteers dress in black with black masks and move the puppets around. It was spectacular! You can check out a promo video and some pictures of the show at their website here.
