This week we are going to be learning about Mexico. We are going to learn about the Mexican festival, the ‘day of the dead’, or ‘Dia de los muertos’. Tomorrow you are going to be writing a diary entry as though you had been to the festival.
Can you find out:
- When the festival takes place?
- What it is about?
- What things you might be able to do?
- Would you wear anything special?
- Would you eat anything special?
- Why people celebrate the festival?
Have a look at the websites and documents below to see if you can find the answers to these questions. Can you find out anything else about the day of the dead or Mexico?
