For this unit students learned about the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos, which translates to the Day of the Dead. A long standing three day tradition that celebrates the deceased of loved ones. Students watched a video of the ofrendas (offerings) families make for loved ones that include food, photographs, flowers and skulls...or calaveras. Students were given the challenge to create their own Calavera taking into account design, proportions, symmetry, asymmetry, bordering and themes.
