Big Heads

I’m still adding photos, but so far……

In 7th grade my students make paper mache bowls and in 8th grade we grow the project a little to make great big heads.  I have the students do some research about masks in different cultures, but the students really just kind of go off on there own and create there own ideas of what they want in a mask.

Haloween Costumes

I don’t do this every year, but making costumes is a great project for students.  You have to learn how to plan, work creatively, cheaply, and somewhat quickly.

The balloons made a great, if somewhat unwieldy grape costume along with Mr. Mc.
