Classroom Ideas

As part of a masks unit of work, the children could research the history of masks throughout the ages. They could identify what materials, shape and style are used as part of a DT unit to evaluate existing products before they make their own masks. Could be used to demonstrate how to make a mask and the teacher could ask the children to design and make their own masks based on a theme, for example an African theme. Once the mask has been completed the children could write a 'how to' manual to help others make a mask. Can be used as instructions for making masks in different topics such as Africa, Japan, Ancient Greece, animals, Halloween or for role play activities.
