First Grade Masks
The first graders just completed their lesson on masks. We looked at a lot of masks from all around the world and talked about the function and use of many of them in their cultures. Next, the students tore and painted their cardboard piece with either warm or cool color tempera paint. Next, we discussed how facial expression can tell how the person (or mask) is feeling. The first graders used the opposite color scheme from their background to cut out pieces of paper for their facial expressions. We had also discussed symmetry and their goal was to keep their expression symmetrical! Finally, the students got to add a line of beads in a special place for embellishment. Great job!
