Design and Technology KS1 / KS2: Making masks
This short film looks at historical theatrical masks around the world; from the times of Ancient Greece to the present day.
Michelle Ackerley explains what materials and accessories are needed before challenging school girls Kathryn and Suzanne to have a go themselves.
This short film is from the BBC series, I Want to Design.
The short film could be used to demonstrate how to make a mask and, after watching, you could challenge your pupils to design and make their own masks based on a theme (for example, an African theme).
Once the mask has been completed, pupils could write a 'how to' manual to help others make a mask.
This short film will be relevant for teaching primary design & technology and art & design.
