Day of the Dead Classroom Learning
"I learned that Day of the Dead is about happiness, and getting together with family to celebrate people who have passed away," shares Elizabeth Rasi, a 3rd grade student at Lone Pine.  Reflecting on the learning in Señor Johns' Spanish class surrounding Day of the Dead celebrations, Rasi explains, "we did a "See-Think-Wonder" on the board, while looking at pictures of Señor Johns' grandmother who passed away.  It's good for people to celebrate Day of the Dead every year, because it makes them feel good about themselves and other people." Kindergarteners through 4th graders participated in learning experiences oriented toward group inquiry about the holiday in Señor Johns' Spanish classes.  Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that takes place from October 31 until November 2.
