Day of the Dead!
Día de los Muertos Activities.
These activities should take a whole lesson and could be extended into homework. Students will learn cultural facts and vocabulary such as:
el pan de muerto
Start by showing the PowerPoint: I have written in English, adding in the Spanish vocabulary and have tried to keep words to a minimum. I have aimed to include vibrant and interesting images and animations to fire the students’ imaginations! This should take about 10 minutes.
Then either show the YouTube link to the gorgeous 3 minute animation of La Día de los Muertos or give the students the worksheet to complete as they watch. You may wish to play the animation twice.
Finally use the last sheet to help the students respond creatively to what they have learnt by creating a Spanish acrostic, a calligramme or a poem. These will make beautiful displays!
