Explore the native Huichol social-cultural system and create replicas of beaded Huichol masks.
Invite students to explore electronic and traditional resources to investigate the Huichol culture in Mexico. Research the shape and design of traditional Huichol masks. Share information about Huichol customs, contemporary spiritual practices, and mask designs with classmates and teachers.
When research component of the lesson is complete, encourage students to use their knowledge of the Huichol culture to create traditional masks. Students begin by molding Crayola® Model Magic® into a replica of a traditional Huichol mask. Crayola Scissors can cut eye and mouth holes. Shape and trim the modeling compound with craft sticks.
Students design mask patterns with Crayola Washable Markers, using a stippling technique of individual dots to imitate glass beads. Encourage students to make designs bright and symmetric by gently pressing washable markers into Model Magic. Add finishing touches after masks dry 24 hours.
Invite students to organize an event where they can showcase their learning about Mexico and the Huichol culture. Encourage students to wear their masks at some point during the event.
