1st Grade: Masks

African Masks 



-Multicultural Art 

African masks are worn to:

-Celebrate a wedding

-Welcome a new baby

-Wish good luck to the crops

-Celebrate a child becoming an adult

-Tell a story

First grade students carefully cut out geometric shapes to create a face for the mask.

Each mask is symmetrical.

An animal texture pattern was added to the top and bottom of each project.

We enjoyed listening to African music and playing a variety of instruments.

The students also made an African play mask to take home.

We're celebrating Art, Music, and Multicultural learning!
