Students will read informative texts on the topic of masks. Students will read narrative texts such as folk tales with animals as characters. Students will create an animal mask by repurposing a plastic gallon milk container. They will learn the four major functions of masks. They will learn artistic concepts such as texture, pattern, balance, symmetry and asymmetry and color symbolism. As an extension, they can use their masks to perform a play of one of the folktales they read or create their own animal tale to perform.
