This week, we finished up a unit on Jim Henson. Students learned that he was born right here in MISSISSIPPI! We then learned that Henson was the creator of one of our favorite muppets, Kermit! After talking about how Henson created the children’s show Sesame Street to make learning fun, we wrote our own scripts and created our own children’s show skit. For the skits, students paired up had to teach their audience how to perform a simple procedure, such as making a sandwich or brushing their teeth. Once the students created their skits, they each worked to create their own muppet and performed their show for their class! They did an AWESOME job on these!!
