Third Grade Masks

Third graders viewed slides about masks in history and foreign cultures. They were very respectful as they learned about different cultures and types of masks.They learned that masks are made of all types of materials. They learned that masks are used for ceremonies, festivals, burials, story telling, and protection  in sports. They learned that  mosaic masks are made of tiny tiles. Then they had to choose whether to make a warm colored or cool colored mask.  Choices! We have paper tiles in metallic colors too, to embellish the eyes, mouth and ear pieces. They are off to a great start!
