African Masks

Third grade students were introduced to Africa and African masks through power point. Students learned that African masks were used for many purposes such as celebrations, war preparation, ceremonies, harvest time and communicating with ancestors. Third grade students really enjoyed creating their own 3-D African mask. They had to make their masks symmetrical and use neutral colors.
They are all wonderful works of art!
