Indonesian Shadow Puppets
Students watched a video performance of Indonesian shadow puppets, or Wayang Kulit, and learned about how other cultures tell important stories. We learned about archetypes, and brainstormed a list of archetypes (such as "pop star") and non-archetypes (e.g. "Miley Cyrus"). Students then learned about the proportions of the human body and used this information to create their own archetypal shadow puppets.
