Having a Masquerade in the classroom was so much fun! You can use this product as a springboard for a full classroom transformation or as an engaging, cross-curricular activity (activities, rather!).
We started by decorating masks (templates included) and discussing what a masquerade is by reading "The History of the Masquerade Ball" (included). Then we grouped up and moved to our centers! When it was time to rotate, we "danced" to our next center. To set the stage, we displayed a photo of a "real" Masquerade Ball found on Google Images. We played Antonio Vivaldi station on Pandora while we were working. It was a great way to practice multiplication skills and get our STEM brains going with an exciting challenge (included)!
The hard work is done for you, but this activity does involve some prep. You will have to print the task cards and gather the materials that are not provided (see list above). If you CHOOSE to, I provide easy ideas to decorate the classroom for a masquerade. However, this product as a stand-alone activity (not a full transformation) is just as engaging!
