West African Masks
3rd Graders learned about West African culture and how masks are used for ceremonial purposes - art that is used for ceremonies, celebrations or rituals. We discussed the human characteristics that each mask had (eyes, nose and mouth), how they were symmetrical and were made from wood (things found in nature). Students then created their own version of a West African mask.
