In three short weeks, people all across the Americas and beyond will be celebrating Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Teachers have begun to search for resources, and families who are now homeschooling are looking for materials, too.
So I'm delighted to share this Day of the Dead virtual classroom.
You may remember me sharing a similar resource last month for Hispanic Heritage Month. This new digital site has been created by the same team of educators.
Created by a remarkable group of educators, you can find:
- information about the culture surrounding the holiday,
- explanations of the symbolism found in the items of the ofrenda,
- descriptions on how the holiday is celebrated in 12 countries,
- tutorials for crafts,
- read aloud books,
- music online,
- and more.
Once again, most of the YouTube videos may be watched safely without having access to inappropriate content.
If you're looking for free resources to celebrate Day of the Dead, this should probably be at the top of your list!
And if you are wondering...yes, you can share it with everyone.
