MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 11, 2012) — Change the world one puppet show at a time by scheduling a Pacer’s Kids Against Bullying Puppet Show at a school or community event.
The puppet shows are now available for scheduling in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. The show helps children in grades 1-3 learn about bullying prevention.
Five endearing multicultural, child-size puppets that portray children with and without disabilities share the definition of bullying, ways children can respond, how to help others being bullied, and more.
The show focuses on different types of bullying (physical, verbal and social/exclusion), and lets children know that no one ever deserves to be bullied. Throughout the interactive presentation, children can learn through dialogue and question/answer.
Shows may also be scheduled for PACER’s COUNT ME IN® puppet shows, designed to help children and adults learn about disabilities in an effort to bridge the gap between typical students and those with disabilities. Shows are available for preschool and kindergarten age, and first to fourth grade.
To schedule either of the shows in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area or purchase the puppets, visit PACER.org/puppets or call952-838-9000. For more information, e-mail [email protected] or call PACER at 952-838-9000.
