Product Description

"On my tombstone it will say, 'I tried everything. Nothing was easy'."

Rita Rudner (American comedienne ~ 1953)

For November 1st, Día de Todos los Santos, students craft a tombstone out of a cereal box.

Students choose a famous Spanish-speaking person or Hispanic-American who is no longer living, research facts about that person, and then create a tombstone.

On November 1st you just set up 'the cemetery' of tombstones so students can walk through it, read each tombstone, and answer questions about the famous people buried there.

After that, students make a short oral presentation about their person while students fill in a category chart.

After the class activity on November 1st, this also makes a wonderful display in the school library.

Included here are:

1. Detailed project instructions in English

2. A grading rubric

3. A research notes form

4. A list of almost 70 names of famous people to choose from

* NOTE *

Students do the research on their person during a class period, then use that information to create their tombstone at home using an empty cereal box that they've saved.

5. A tombstone template for the alternate version

6. A categorization chart for class presentations

7. A sample follow-up test on the people

8. Photos of some outstanding student samples

9. An 11-page overhead about burial customs in Spanish-speaking countries and some photos of the tombstones of some famous Hispanics.

We do the research part at least two weeks before the due date of the tombstones so students have ample time to do a nice job at home.

An Alternate Version is included, if time is short, whereby students take the information on their person and put it on a tombstone template on paper which they prepare at home.

This is also another activity to do around 'Dia de los Muertos'.

Everything here is ready-to-use so you can set this project in motion with ease.

You'll be surprised at how creative your students can be. (35 pages)

* A SPECIAL NOTE *

Another teacher, Karen H. of Ohio, has added a brilliant twist to this basic activity and buys black plastic tablecloths at a dollar store to put on the desks, puts black lights on the whiteboard ledges, places battery-operated tea lights around the tombstones, has the overhead on with a blue screen and the classroom lights off, and plays some spooky music such as 'Liszt's Danza macabra' or 'Marschner's El Vampiro' as students circulate to read the tombstones ... added touches that make for a memorable classroom experience for students.

Here are yet a few more music options:
