Teach your students about this beautiful Mexican holiday, El Dia de los Muertos! This is a bilingual craft activity that teaches students about the symbols that are included on the typical altar de muertos. Students can decorate and build their own altar with the clipart provided. This activity comes with 2 editable templates (1 in English & 1 in Spanish). It also comes with a coloring craft, a coloring worksheet for the Día de los Muertos Symbols and their meanings. As well as a worksheet where your students can draw and describe their own symbols.
This activity is open-ended which means you can insert your own text/instructions. You can turn this into an articulation activity by typing in your student's target words, or turn it into a following directions activity by typing in the instructions. Another suggestion is to turn it into a WH question activity by typing in WH questions about each of the symbols that your student will place on their altar. The possibilities are endless!
Please note: Open this activity in Acrobat or other PDF program in order to edit and add your own text.
