Allow small groups to "look/think/wonder" about a mask image: Look and describe what you see. Based on what you see, what do you think the mask is for? What do you wonder about the mask (or want to learn about the mask)? Then allow students to click the Information button to learn more. Groups can report out to the whole class.
Facilitate a discussion with students using some open ended questions:
- Why do people make and wear masks?
- What can be hidden or revealed using a mask?
- What might a mask symbolize or stand for?
- If you were to design a mask for a special purpose, what would it look like?
Direct students to sketch their ideas to plan for creating a mask.
