This 10- to 15-minute PowerPoint presentation surveys the history and artistic traditions of The Day of the Dead, or El Dia de los Muertos.
This PowerPoint would make a great introduction to Halloween or other fall art room projects (see my products), as well as cultural units in Spanish class.
In Mexico and other parts of Latin America, people celebrate the Day of the Dead on November 1st and 2nd. El Dia de los Muertos is a time to remember and celebrate family members and friends who have died.
Of the many important artistic traditions associated with the Day of the Dead, three of the most significant are papel picado, Catrinas, and sugar skulls. This PowerPoint presentation reviews these traditions.
The presentation includes 12 slides with presenter notes. Make sure to open the Notes pane or print the speaker notes with the slides to get the content that goes with the images.
This presentation aligns to Common Core standards for Speaking & Listening, and History/Social Studies (see above).
