El Día de los Muertos is celebrated on November first and second throughout different countries in Latin America as well as in the United States. During these two days, the celebration is about the people that have passed away. The students learned the history and how important it is in the Latin cultures. The students created an altar and they had bread (El Día de los Muertos bread). To make the altar the students learned a technique to cut paper that was used by the indigenous people of Central America. They also learned to make paper flowers also a technique used in Mexico. Professor Escudero Moro incorporated the grammar learned by the students.
