I’m still adding photos, but so far……
Sam P. in full stalking mode
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.
This is how the big head project started. I had some big balloons and had my students blow them up. Weirdly only a few popped, I expected more.
The g-man painting up the big head. He always too happy. I tell him to stop being happy, he just does not listen to me.
We did a lot of painting.
Ms. K models the mouse.
The room looked like this a lot.
Here’s a few shots of Christians head on and off. He did a great job finishing!
This one, I think by Miss Page, has some great 3-d additions to the big round head she started with.
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.

Grape hugging, for good luck.
A picture of dental health, great costumes!
