This movie study contains the ready-to-go lesson plans you’ll need to show The Book of Life (El libro de la vida) in your classroom! I designed this packet to be easy to use (just print and go!) and also educational. It's great for an introduction to Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos)
The lessons are designed for upper-intermediate to advanced students at any age/grade level
Although the materials are not entirely in Spanish, they are made for a Spanish-speaking classroom. I recommend showing the movie in Spanish, perhaps with subtitles depending on the level of your students.
-4 detailed lesson plans
-2 handouts (and answer keys!)
-1 powerpoint presentation
-*The actual movie is not included*
Students Will Learn:
-How The Day of the Dead is celebrated
-Key phrases and vocabulary
-How Día de los Muertos is different from Halloween.
