This is a classic elementary school activity for Day of the Dead in Mexico. You cut out the form of a Catrina (female skeleton) and join the bones together to form a skeleton! You can use brads to make the skeleton move or simply use paste/glue if you want it in a set position.
Your students can color the catrina before cutting it out, or leave it in black and white!
For added fun you can also decorate the Catrina with clothing; I’ve included a few sample pictures to give you some ideas.
This is part of my #SpanishforKids series! The activity is classic for elementary school students, but is also fun for middle school or high school learners as well! Also, it can make a great Day of the Dead decoration for your classroom!
The download is a 2 page PDF printable on standard 8.5 x 11 paper. No answer key necessary, but I did include some example photos
