Feliz Día de Hallowe'en!
For your whole-class project tomorrow, each student must bring one object to add to our class altar in celebration of Day of the Dead. Remember that this day is a combination of European and Indigenous traditions, and represents the crossing of Catholic heritage with Aztec and Maya traditions in México. The objects you bring in must pertain to the cultural tradition and/or the person who has died.
The class with the most decorated, culturally accurate, and meaningful altar as voted by ten teachers/administrators will win a class treat: donut party and cartoon day Friday with no evaluation. For any questions or concerns, please communicate with me either in person or via email.
For some ideas of artwork or objects to bring in, please check out the following links:
