Italian students in grades 6-8 at Oldfield Middle School recently learned about Carnivale—an annual festival celebrated in Italy, particularly in Venice, Fano and Viareggio. The festival is famous for the elaborate masks people wear. Children typically dress up and participate in parades to celebrate the events as well.

To enhance the learning-experience within the classroom, students created masks that ranged from the simple to the ornate and wore them throughout the day.
