Dia De Los Muertos

Dia De Los Muertos

Author: Matthew Manuel

Our objective is to gain a better understanding about Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Additionally, we are going to look inside ourselves and see what Dia De Los Muertos means to us individually.

We will watch the three videos and after each video discuss what we watched. After the second video we will discuss what the young girl saw and how she felt while she was on her adventure to the underworld! The third video will allow us to think about the poem being read and reflect on how the poem made us feel. We will respond to the Google Form with our answers to the prompted questions.
