These materials are designed specifically for students whose families have requested that they not learn about El Día de los Muertos. The assignments will fill 3-5, 45 minute class periods with independent, self-guided work (depending on student pace). The materials are designed for you to be able to print them out and hand them to your students that need an alternate assignment--nothing more!
The materials are ONLY about Monarch butterflies and Michoacán, and they do not mention El Día de los Muertos. The readings will be most accessible for students in their second year of Spanish. Students in Year 1 could complete Steps 1-2 and 6-7 below; possibly Steps 3-4.
The materials include elements from existing products, so please consider how many of the elements you might already own before making the purchase. Worksheets are included for each of the activities so that students can complete them with ease:
