Today the first, 2nd, and 3rd grade students finished their hobbit puppets, and you can see they morphed along the way into other things. Only the first grade students wanted sticks at the back like I put on mine. All of the children chose to use their own imaginations, so what started out as an exercise in making hobbits became the excuse for making ninja fighting cats, robots, and more. These students will attend a puppet performance of The Hobbit on a field trip to Fayetteville tomorrow, and so the exercise in making hobbit puppets was done in preparation. Naturally, they want to take their puppets with them on the bus.The first grade students are shown below.
