The Act of Remembering | Ofrendas Lesson 1

Updated Oct 1, 2019

In this lesson, students will explore, observe, analyze, interpret and respond to various Día de Muertos ofrendas, as well as other original and authentic sources in order to analyze and interpret what “the act of remembering” means in Mexican Día de Muertos culture.  Students will be asked to incorporate elements of Día de Muertos into their own ofrenda or artistic rendering, as they are invited to create their own “act of remembering”.
