Mask Design

Humans have been making masks for more than 9,000 years. It is an ancient tradition and a part of our world heritage. Consider your identity and culture and design your own mask. Think about everything you have done in this unit. Consider what is inside you that you want to show but may not be easily seen. Design your mask to reflect your unique identity and culture. Annotate the design elements and principles you used in your mask. After you have designed your mask, create a 5-paragraph informational essay explaining your mask. Be sure to brainstorm your design and writing. Look at the links below and other links for inspiration to design your mask. After you have designed your mask, add it to your essay document. Include a creative title and post it on Seesaw. Record your voice reading your essay.
