"Can we make those?" my students called out, as we studied the colorful Vejigante masks of Puerto Rico in a video.
"Yes we can make these masks," I assured them. "Let's figure out what the Vejigante mask is all about. That will help us build our own mask interpretations."
For each slide that flashed on the screen, I asked my students, "What do you notice? What do you wonder?"
Jasmina jumped in, "I notice lots of spots. They painted them with spots, on every mask. I wonder why?"
"I see lots of horns, I notice they are scary," said Orlando.
