Product Description
El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Research Project

This purchase includes a 2-3 day collaborative research webquest on the Spanish holiday, El Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead.

Students are given access to a Day of the Dead Spanish Holiday Google Site with rich images and multimedia content, Google Drive research questions handouts, and a digital note-taking card – all provided with a Google Share link accessible directly on the site!

*Printable pdf copies are also included.

This project is designed for collaborative groups of four students. Teachers can modify the project and assign this for individual research instead, implement research pairs, or use this resource for groups of three.

The Day of the Dead Webquest includes four different student roles:

History Hunter

Culture Curator

Food and Music Expert

Symbol Sage

The Day of the Dead website includes 5 digital resources for each of the four roles or topics. One of the five resources includes a video to further enhance student learning about Spanish Culture and El Dia de los Muertos.

Students are provided research questions on their handouts. The specific guiding questions align with their topics, keep the research process structured, and will ensure your students stay focused from start to finish!.

A digital notecard further keeps them organized and on task!

Printable copies are provided of each.

A teacher answer key is also available for all research questions.

For the final project, group members accumulate their research findings in order to create a comprehensive Google Slides presentation highlighting what they’ve learned!

A teacher’s grading rubric for the slide presentation is included.

Teacher notes in this product include how to share the resources in your Google Classroom!

This project would be a great activity for Halloween! Students could compare and contrast the American holiday and the Spanish holiday/celebration!
