Dia de los Muertos-Day of the Dead

Reposted on Crafty Crow

We have been studying about Dia de los Muertos-Day of the Dead. The students just absolutely love this unit! We have been making all the items used to create an altar in one's home for the special day celebrated on November 1 and 2. In 5th grade, each student created their personal designs on paper skull, painted fun backgrounds and borders on construction paper then added sequins, and jewels. The razzle-dazzle really added that extra touch.

    I am about to start (late, I know!) a lesson based on the presentation you and your co-teacher gave last year at state convention. I have a few students who have moved here from Mexico and we are going to explore the culture.

    Just a few days until this year's convention.
    Can't wait!
