African Masks: Elliott Style
We were reading about African dynasties that flourished just South of the Sahara in our Story of the World book recently. The girls had fun creating their own "African Masks" but I think I made a mistake by not showing them pictures of African masks ahead of time. They made what amounted to cute little animal puppets with fringe. I'd like to take them to the Denver Art Museum to see if they have some authentic masks so the girls could get a better idea of what we were talking about. It just isn't the same looking at a picture.
