Celebrate Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos with this four(ish) hour craft activity. I have done this project for years with my high school students and they always LOVE making their own paper mache skulls (or masks), while developing their ideas about the complexities of the holiday.

This listing includes a powerpoint (and PDF version of the presentation) with lots of pictures from my own classroom to guide your students through the whole art making process. All slides are in English.

Check out the preview for a better idea of what's included!
