Day of the Dead
By Lisa Ricenbaw, Exeter-Milligan Spanish Instructor
In addition to learning the Spanish language, Spanish students have culture incorporated into their lessons. Culture is essential when learning a language as it allows the learner to give context to the words they are using.
Students learned about the Huichol Indians and how their culture has made artwork a way of life. They also learned about how Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico with many activities to remember their deceased loved ones. Each Spanish I student made a mask with a theme of their choice and presented his/her mask to the class.
