|Painted pumpkin in Día de los Muertos style|
1. The first idea I found on Pinterest, which lead me to this website. As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be my project for the weekend. I completed my pumpkin today (on the left) and I'll take it to school with me tomorrow to adorn my room for the week. This would be a great last minute Spanish club idea. It will work best if the students either buy a white pumpkin so they don't need to paint it first, or bring a painted white pumpkin to the meeting.
2. The blog "Aprendemos Español" has a post on the animated short film "La niña que recuerda". She included a link to the video, a slide show with screen shots, sentences to match to photos in a collage, and links to several other resources for Día de los Muertos. Thanks to Elena López for sharing her work!
