4th Grade Masks

The 4th grade students looked at and studied many different types of masks.  We discussed the difference between symmetrical balance and asymmetrical balance.  Symmetrical balance is when the mask is exactly the same on both sides, and asymmetrical balance is when the two sides are different.  We also talked about the difference between 3-Dimensional and 2-Dimensional art.  The students were able to create their own unique design for their mask using either symmetrical or asymmetrical balance.  Finally students were able to add many fun details to create their 3-D Mask.
