More puppets, but this time we’re celebrating spring. It’s a great way for children to talk about the changes they’re seeing in nature; how plants are awakening, flowers are blooming, and little creatures are suddenly everywhere. They can use these observations to help them develop ideas for puppets.

Topographic maps provide us with a bird’s eye view of three dimensional surfaces. With the use of contour lines, shading, and precise measurements, these representations show us how land rises into rock formations, or slopes gently towards a stream. This project is a great accompaniment to lessons on topography, where children can apply their knowledge to create unique looking landscapes using layers of felt.
