Read Aloud Activity Frontloading Activity Read “The Goalie Mask” to the class. Frontloading is essential in bringing/activating prior knowledge to the students. This book is only a suggestion; feel free to use your own. Weave a web of understanding activity In small groups of students. Ask the students to draw one item about goalie masks or hockey masks they know and can bring to the group. In a large circle, students share what they know about goalie masks. The goal is for the groups to discuss and brainstorm ideas. Shared Reading/ Read Aloud Take your favorite few lines from the book and have students follow along while you read it. Depending on the Primary level/ability, have students dissect the words according to structure and voice. Discuss the

The first mask was a crude leather model (actually a football "nose-guard") worn by Clint Benedict in the 1920s to protect his broken nose.[1] After recovering from the injury, he never used it again. Jacques Plante was the first to wear a mask full-time after being struck in the face with a puck during a game in 1959.[2] Although Plante faced some derision, the fiberglass goalie mask soon became the standard and a symbol of the game as typified by the famous painting, "At The Crease," by Ken Danby. This style of mask is no longer used by hockey leagues; yet its fame continues because of its continued use by horror icon Jason Voorhees of the Friday the 13th movie series.[3] Since the invention of the fiberglass hockey mask, professional goalies no longer play without a mask. The last goalie not to wear a mask was Andy Brown, who last played in the National Hockey League (NHL) in the 1973-74 season.[4] The advent of the goalie mask changed the way goaltenders play, allowing them to make more saves on their knees without fear of serious head or facial injuries. Before the advent of the mask, most goaltenders stayed standing as much as possible. In the modern era, a goaltender is likely to make the majority of saves when he has one or both knees on the ice.

Group Activity: After the piece has been read to the students, ask them to discuss in their pairs/groups what is the most important piece of information in the paragraph. Tell me them to be prepared to share. Have student write one sentence on a sentence strip and tape their response on the board or chart paper for others to see. Each group will read aloud their answer. Cross Curricular Activities: Art: Paper Mache Goalie Masks (make sure the students are frontloaded with some images of NHL masks and the symmetry that goes into creating the images. This is a fantastic opportunity to extend symmetry from the Math curriculum. One paper mache website link to explain “how to” : This activity could be combined with an Intermediate “buddy” class to encourage students to work with each other.
