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!
