Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Unit Review
Note: I received a complimentary copy for purposes of this review. All opinions are exclusively mine.
In Puerto Rico the Catholic church celebrates on November 1st All Saints Day, and on November 2nd Misa a los Fieles Difuntos (All Souls Day). During these two days the church celebrates a special Mass service in church and/or at the cemetery. As you can see it’s a pretty simple prayer service.
Deeply rooted in the Catholic beliefs Day of the Dead is a celebration of the life, and remembrance of our loved ones who have passed away. Greatly celebrated in Mexican culture, and across the U.S.A. during November 1-2 this celebration entails skulls, ofrendas, marigolds, and altars for our loved ones that have passed on. Becky does a great job at explaining these elements in her unit.
This unit is full of valuable information on learning about Day of the Dead. It’s perfect for our Spanish Homeschool lessons, and I’ve been able to use this with his friends as well during the Spanish playgroup. It’s geared towards children in PreK, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. The kids in his group are 4, 5, and 6 yrs. old.
This has been such a valuable resource for both my son, our Spanish homeschool and myself. If you’re interested in getting this unit go to her TpT store.
