Guided Activity• After students practice in their seats with one another…• Have students volunteer to come up in front of the class to make each one of the different faces• While they are up there point out how each facial expression has different shapes of eyebrows, nose, mouth, eyes, etc.
Extension• Have a lesson on a different culture that creates masks. You could teach the students the history of the culture and why they have masks and how they are made. This could even tie into a time when your school has Heritage day.
