To complete the mini ofrenda, students:

-include a photo of the person
-write nouns and adjectives to describe the person in the marigolds
-write the person's birth/death dates and/or age in the candle

Students can make their ofrenda for a loved one, pet, or a celebrity or fictional character if they would rather not do it for someone they know
The instructions are editable so you can have students include more or less and decide whether they complete it in Spanish or English based on their level.
The completed ofrendas make a great display. You can also choose to have students present their ofrendas.
