Activity 2

Indian Shadow Puppets

Shadow puppets are an ancient part of India's culture, particularly regionally.

Initially have a go at creating your own simple Indian Shadow Puppets using the templates you'll find in the British Council's India Education pack which you can access by clicking here.

You'll find templates for making Rama, Sita, Hanuman and Ravana, from page 12 in the pack onwards.

Have a go at filming your shadow puppets telling a story. For some inspiration to get started why not check out this example of the Rama and Sita told by some Yr3 and Yr 4 children using their Shadow Puppets.  If you don't know the story of Rama and Sita, then why not start by having a look at the simple introduction to the tale in Activity 9 of the Topic.
