Create a mask for a classroom masquerade! Have your students pick their favorite animals and display their knowledge of attributes in this seasonal project.
Pre-cut enough mask shapes out of poster board for your entire class. Using a hot glue gun, glue a dowel stick to the right side of each mask. Put the masks aside.
Ask your students to find a partner and discuss their favorite animals: What color is the animal? Does it have fur or scales? What climate does the animal live in?
Give students Crayola® Construction paper and a pencil. Ask the students to draw the outline of their animal and details (eyes, nose, fur, scales, etc). Encourage them to make the animal double the size of their own heads.
Instruct students to use Crayola® Classic Markers to make the details of their animals bold.
Ask the students to use Crayola® Washable Kids Paint to accent details on their animals with a Crayola® Watercolor Brush. If they would like to add some sparkle, encourage them to use Crayola® Squeezable Glitter.
Allow the art to dry.
Provide each student with one of the pre-assembled masks and Crayola® No-Drip School Glue.
Ask students to glue the mask cut out to the back center of their animal creation.
Give the students a pair of scissors.
Instruct the students to cut out the eyes and mouth with scissors to finish their product.
