Fabulous Fourth Graders~ Mexico! Day of the Dead Skulls

Fourth graders learned about the cultural celebration of Day of the Dead. Not to be confused with Halloween, the holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to remember friends and family members who have died, much like Memorial Day in our country.  
There are many celebrations and parades. Skeletons and decorated skulls are a big part of the holiday so we gave it a try!
A combination of oil and chalk pastels were used making very messy tables and hands but the kids didn't mind.

In order to complete it, they were to create a border or decorate each corner.
I love how unique each one is, including this Marine!
