Puppetry in Environmental Education
Yesterday I attended the Massachusetts Environmental Education Society (M.E.E.S.) Conference in Worcester. It was inspiring and informative plus an opportunity to connect with so many like-minded people. I set up my entire staging for "Turtle's Wetland Quest" as an exhibit and had many good conversations about the effectiveness of puppetry when teaching just about anything. There were several impressive young students who have become leaders in their schools and towns for projects such as composting cafeteria scraps and starting a campaign to stop "idling" (of sitting vehicles) In this picture the puppets are being held by one of them and interacting with another exhibitor.
Thanks for stopping in!
