Celebrate Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead with this engaging 5-star rated poetry lesson inspired by an authentic calavera! Your students will love learning about and crafting humorous calaveras based on professions that they can relate to. Given how the example calavera is based on a barber, a role many of us took a stab at during lockdown, students will relate well to the example, too!

This resource includes:

  • a brief background on calaveras
  • a brief analysis of a sample calavera
  • instructions for crafting and presenting a calavera
  • editable cards with 15 modern professions for students to base their calaveras on
  • a sample student calavera
