This week, we strolled over to the Middle School building to check out their presentations on Ancient Egypt. These Middle School presentations tied in nicely with our curriculum. It was also nice to see some of our older friends!
The annual Mexican celebration, Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a time when families gather to honor and remember deceased loved ones. It is believed that the souls of the dead return to visit the living families in homes, businesses and cemeteries.
As a class we read about the holiday then created our own calavera! Calavera means “skull” in Spanish. Calavera have become one of the most recognizable cultural and artistic elements of the Day of the Dead festivities. Our 3D paper Calavera crafts turned out really nicely.
