Playing with Shadows an Introduction to Shadow Puppetry is an instructional video site hosted by ArtsEdge, the arts education wing of the Kennedy Center. It's so lifelike. You can even make your own virtual puppet show. The graphics and the historical information make this a valuable, virtual resource.
If you prefer the tangible, Teaching Artist Debra Wuliger, our TA of the day, has posted a terrific shadow puppet lesson plan here, under the auspices of Young Audiences, Northeast Ohio.
