Paper Mache

Fourth grade students learned about the many different purposes of masks such as telling stories and remembering history. They saw how masks support the culture and beliefs in many different areas of Mexico. Using personal history as inspiration, each student is designing a mask. Today we are using paper mache to build the base. Watch the video to see it in action!

Strike A Pose

Third grade students are drawing "sausage people." As one classmate models a pose, the others draw sausage shapes for each body part to capture the action of the pose.
