Product Description
Día de los Muertos Complete Spanish Resource Pack

I am SO PROUD of this resource! It represents years of developing activities to help my students understand the products, practices and perspectives of this beautiful celebration.

I have added resources I use in all levels so that there is something for each of your classes. Many of these activities can be adapted to multiple levels easily. You could easily spend a week teaching about Dia de los Muertos USING THE TARGET LANGUAGE! There is no reason you cannot teach culture in Spanish and this resource will guide you through it!
