In Art class, 2nd graders learned about the Mexican celebration,
The Day of the Dead.
On this day, families visit the graves of loved ones they have lost. Candles, marigold flowers, food and drinks are placed on the graves. This is a happy time for families, not a sad one. Many skulls and skeletons are seen during this celebration to represent the spirits of loved ones.
Students created Calacas
(handmade skeletons) using Q-tips!
