Here's a collection of some photos to help tell the story of how the sixth grade mask unit progressed.

Aside from just a few masks that were a bit on the scary side, we had a successful mask making unit. I tried to motivate the students away from the violence and blood theme, but was not entirely perfect at that. Perhaps some of those types will want to display their mask propped among the Halloween pumpkins next fall.
