Celebrating History with Arts

Comment 0

The Grade 5 students had a blast understanding important events in African history through visual and performing arts.

For African culture, each student was given the choice to make an African mask or create an African drum. All of them used recycled materials like tissue rolls, old containers, or paper plates. They enjoyed painting their work and some took the extra mile and added decoration for that extra oomph.

For our discussion on West African kings, they had to create a puppet show depicting the likes of Mansa Musa and Sundiata. They created backdrops and puppets again out of recycled materials. So proud of their hard work! Mask1 Puppet show Mask2
