Los Dias de Los Muertos. The Days of the Dead. 1991 Edition.
Lane, Sarah; Turkovich, Marilyn
The Dias de los Muertos is a celebration of Mexico that is a recognition of mortality, transience, and death, and a celebration of life, hope, and resurrection. This curriculum activity book begins with a general introduction to the festival followed by sections of explanations and activities intended to engage the learner in various aspects of the holiday. Each section begins with a brief reading that provides adequate information to complete the accompanying activity exercise. Most activities are complete in themselves and can be presented singly. The material can be used equally well by students working individually or in a group led by the teacher. An annotated bibliography and a general bibliography are included. (DB)
