Hello 5th grade! We’ve been learning about how art changes perceptions, and we are continuing this unit with Jim Henson! Jim Henson was the creator of the Muppets, and a pioneer in changing modern day puppeteering. Today we are watching the linked video on the history of Jim Henson, and learning about his revolutionary puppeteering. After you are done watching the video, please look at the attached template to respond about what you learned. You will also read through the slides, to decide which muppet you identify with! Make sure you read through all of the slides. Next week you will start learning how to Muppetize yourself! Have fun!
