Description: Celebrate the Day of the Dead with a treat of chocolate mexicano! This worksheet is meant to complement any class study of the Day of the Dead, Mexico, the Aztec or the Maya. In Spanish, students read about the history of chocolate and its connection to the holiday and Mexico's history. They can make their own illustration and observations of Aztec art featuring chocolate, as well as its Maya glyph. After trying the drink, students interact with Spanish descriptive adjectives to describe it and answer the question, "Cómo es el chocolate? ¿Te gusta?"
Note: This lesson requires students to try Mexican style hot chocolate, which is not included. Two popular brands found in many markets are Ibarra and Abuelita.
