Teach Mexican culture and capture the Halloween excitement with this "Day of the Dead / Halloween" Activity sheet.
Whether you teach Spanish or Social Studies, it is an imperative cultural lesson to show the distinct differences between the two holidays. Day of the Dead is no more Spanish Halloween than Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day.
This bundle of materials includes:
1. A coloring page with the Mexican Flag and a skeleton. This can be used as a reward or as an art project to be displayed in the classroom.
2. The activity page itself offers two word searches. One has key terms (in Spanish and English) related to Day of the Dead and the other has key terms associated with Halloween. The two combined will be a great compliment to your holiday lesson plans.
The activity page also has space dedicated to the comparison and contrast of the two holidays. This design allows for individual work or small group and pair collaboration.
