Sacred Skulls, Dia de los Muertos

Let's share this beloved Mexican holiday with our students by decorating sugar skulls! Many people of Mexican heritage make these sugar skulls to remember and honor their loved ones who have passed away.

Students can use the Keynote template to design a sugar skull that utilizes symmetry. Then students can record audio explaining whose life their sugar skull design honors.

“This joyful holiday—which celebrates life more than death—dates back to pre-Hispanic Mexico.” - Edutopia

This is such a creative activity! I love that you have included tips on how to use the tools to ensure the decorations are applied symmetrically too. It’s an activity that is fun, promotes appreciation of culture and tradition, and teaches technology skills all at the same time.
