Celebrate traditions by learning about Dia De Los Muertos or the Day of the Dead. This holiday traditionally starts on the eve of October 31st and ends on November 2nd. This pack has four activities that represent special parts of this holiday. The STEAM projects include: sugar skull art, movable skeleton, altars/tables along with picture frames to draw in to place on them, and paper marigolds.

We set up a special table for our projects to be displayed as well as the posters that share with students, staff, and families what our table represents. We even set up a bowl where you can fill out a card sharing a loved one you miss because they no longer are with you.

This pack includes:

* pictures

*materials lists

*station cards

*Four STEAM stations including Skeletons, marigolds, sugar skulls, and tables

*reflection sheets

*book ideas and links

*posters for a table that explain the holiday
