We have started our 8-week visual arts unit at Laurel Dell Elementary, during which we are making Carnival costumes and learning about Carnival traditions around the world. Each class is a “crew” or a “band,” and the students chose their own crew themes. All the costumes will be made from some form of paper, and include found and recycled materials. Some crews are making masks of various kinds, and others are making headdresses, and also paper capes or vests.
