Now, if you are ready, let’s start.
- Create groups of 4
The first thing you need to do is create a team of 4 people. This is definitely a group project and requires teamwork. Make sure to ask your teacher if you need help creating your teams. Each team will be assigned a different aspect of this celebration. Team 1 will work with the special foods unique to this holiday. Team 2 will work with the art forms generated. Team 3's topic deals with the history and beginnings. Team 4 gets how the dead are remembered and team 5 in how the spirits are believed to be drawn and attracted.
- Prepare a report
Your first task is to write a short report about your team's portion of Day of the Dead using the resources such as books, websites and other materials given by your teacher (You will also find these resources in the Process section).
- Design a brochure/poster/prepare a project
Then, you will prepare a celebration brochure or poster or project to inform your classmates and families about your group's assigned element of The Day of the Dead celebration and its activities.
- Present your work
After completing your report and brochure/poster/project, your group will present your work about Day of the Dead. All groups must include the dates of the holiday and a brief definition/description.
