After a lot of work and filtering of information, I am excited to offer this mini-unit. This mini unit offers a lesson plan with many suggestions as to games, activities, and learning opportunities. It includes worksheets as well as three PowerPoint presentation, The longest is 51 slides and offers a complete overview of the holiday. It explores the origins of the celebration, it's history, how to prepare, what to expect, things to think about and remember, where it's celebrated, and explores the atmosphere of the celebration. To help students make sure the information on their vocabulary guide, I have included a 23 slide PowerPoint that explains the vocabulary words. The package includes an initial reaction record, word search, exploring vocabulary worksheet with links, a Venn Diagram for comparing and contrasting Dia de los Muertos with Halloween, and Memorial Day, and finally various grading rubrics if you decide to have students do a project and/or present a fair.
