Artists in the Pacific Northwest carve wooden masks for dancers to wear during ceremonies. Part human and part shark, these masks celebrate people's connection to sharks. How can you tell you're looking at a shark? Look for a mouthful of sharp teeth and fishlike gill slits on the forehead.
What to do
- Print the mask.
- Color the mask.
- Cut out the mask.
- Decorate your mask by taping pieces of yarn or scraps of paper to it.
- Tape a stick to the back of the mask to make a handle.
