For your puppet character to be effective in the classroom it's advisable to create a backstory for your puppet, or a 'puppet legend' (the word legend is often used in spy novels) One of the ways I do this is to use a puppet passport. The one that I use is the one below - it's from the 'The Peoples Republic of Merseyside' and it looks like a real passport and inside the details have been filled in. This helps to develop the puppet's backstory - where he's from, his birthday (you can ask the students to make him a birthday card the day before) his hobbies etc.

With the details  and his photo too.
