2nd grade Masks

Why do people make and wear masks?  What is different about masks from a variety of cultures?  The second graders learned about masks as part of learning cultures around the world.  It was fun to see masks in parades, used for ceremonies and to celebrate families.  Most of the masks we looked at were symmetrical, so we decided to make our symmetrical too.  The students used metallic and regular watercolors.  Then, they got to be super creative while adding on raffia and yarn.  How fun!
