Calaveras






Fourth and fifth graders learned about the celebration Los Dias de los Muertos, when families in Mexico honor their ancestors with colorful art, traditions, and fiestas. Decorations like intricately cut tissue paper (papel picado) and paper mache skeletons can be seen as decorations. Students had fun designing their calaveras (skeletons).

  1. This looks like fun! Going to try it with 2nd grade or 3rd. Wish me luck.
