In this one time culture class, we will learn how the Day of the Dead/ Día de los Muertos is celebrated in Mexico. We will discuss the steps to setting up an ofrenda, family unity in Mexico, parades, fiestas, how and why they dress up like skeletons, and why they go to the cemetery at night. We will have a Q and A and discuss how the Day of the Dead compares to Halloween in the U.S. We will take a look at how each celebration has evolved over time and its history.

At the end of class I will introduce the art project called "papel picado" for you to work on after class. This is a decoration that is used during the Day of the Dead celebration. It is made out of crepe paper and has little cuts in a form of a design. An exacto knife works best to cut in small places, but a scissors would work to. I would love to see your projects when you are done. You can post them in the classroom or in feedback. Thank you!
At the end of class we will be making papel picado. Papel picado is a decorative piece of paper with cut outs in it. You will need crepe paper (regular paper or construction paper will work too) and an X-acto knife (regular scissors work too, but will be harder to cut out little pieces).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

The Day of the Dead celebration is a religious holiday in Mexico in which they invite their loved ones back to the land of the living. They have a big celebration, dress up, and bring food to offer to their loved ones. Most people think it is Mexico's version of Halloween, but it is actually more similar to Memorial Day. It is a day of remembrance. The opinions of this lesson is solely from a secular standpoint and does not portray the beliefs or opinions of the teacher or Outschool.
