Our kiddos learned about one of the many Mexican traditions called Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). On this special day, family and friends gather together to remember family and friends that are no longer with us. We read several books about this topic. Students were able to see, touch, and see a cempasúchil (marigold), the traditional flavor used for this celebration. They were able to taste the pan de muertos and see up close a calavera (sugar skull). We culminated this 3-day celebration by making our very own calaveras using a printmaking technique. Stop by our school's main office to see our calaveras in person. They look amazing!
