Here's a must-have activity guide for any celebration of El Dia de Los Muertos. The colorfully 56-page packet is packed with historical background, information about Mesoamerican cultures, images of the works of famous artists, and activities. Class members create skull masks, altars, marigold flowers, Papel Picado, and sugar skulls. They bake Pan de Muerto (dead bread) and read about how the various regions of Mexico celebrate the holiday. A real treasure of a resource.
