Endangered Species Masks

Endangered Species Masks


Hi, I’m Kerry Kolda. I’m a fourth grade teacher
at Booksin Elementary, and my fourth grade students are displaying their endangered species
masks here at the Willow Glen Library. My students worked on the plaster masks in
a couple stages. The first one was, they used surgical gauze. They got in partners and they
actually made a white mask of their faces. After that, the students did a research project
that included finding out about their endangered species, why it is endangered, what’s being
done to save the species, and what they think should be done to save the species. After that, our art liaison for my classoom,
worked with the students on brush strokes, art techniques, to plan out their actual endangered
species masks. This is actually a finished product of the
mask. This is a Queen Alexandra butterfly that one of my students did. Abby Walsh. And
all thirty-one will be displayed at the library probably through October. So, my students
and I hope you come down, get to see the endangered species masks, and really think about the
impact we have on our environment. Thank you.
