Product Description
Lesson Lady presents Day of the Dead art lesson for middle or high school students! This lesson will excite and interest your students as they learn about the Day of the Dead and create a related work of art.

The Day of the Dead lesson lasts approximately 4-5 one hour class periods and is an eight page packet filled with helpful and useful information. Everything you need to plan and create this lesson (except art materials) is included!

Included is a five page lesson plan with step by step directions so your students can be successful. Each step is both described and shown with an illustration. Also included is a page with multiple student examples, a one page reading so students can learn about the Day of the Dead and answer questions, and a four point rubric you may use to grade their assignment.

This project is easily adapted to many environments and offers suggestions for alternate art materials so you can create this product with ease using what you already have in your classroom. Basic materials you will use to create the art in this lesson include white copy paper, markers, a pencil, scissors, glue, and pastels or colored chalk.

This lesson will entice your students and I have found even hard to reach students enjoy designing and creating a skull. Please contact me if you have any questions about this lesson!
