Students learn to draw through shapes, break down animal faces into the mathematical concept of parts of a whole, and plan/design in order to create a three-dimensional mask of one of the animal characters from the book Ungalala by Brenda Parkes. This project was developed to help the classroom teacher very successfully teach the sequence of a story and story retelling as well as a way to incorporate the development of fine motor skills, geometry, critical thinking, collaboration, and confidence building.
