A paper template to create a 3D goalie mask.
Why would you want this? For an art activity to make a 3D model (when folded). It can be used for thematic display also.
I used it in a way that, to begin the school year, students had to set either a personal or school goal and had to show it on the mask using words, symbols etc. Other students had to KNOW what the goal was simply by looking at the mask.
A face can be illustrated behind the screen of the mask (concept of positive and negative space in art).
Assembly instructions: Have students design their mask first recognizing that there is an overlap created when they assemble their mask.
Have students cut on the dashed lines. Have them bring the solid line to where the dashed line (cut line) is; there will be an overlap. Glue is applied on this overlap.
An exception is the top of the mask where students cut along the cut line and then simply overlap the paper (causing the mask to extrude).
Allow students to determine if the "overlap" will be glued under or over the mask...great problem solving activity.
Sorry, no pictures of the finish product, but I can assure you the GOALie masks in our room look great!
