Challenge 3!

This part of the website is for you to explore the history and practices related to the Day of the Dead.

You may want to find a partner or a group of students to work with.

Challenge 3:

Create an altar honoring someone who has died. Write a message to this person. Photograph the altar you’ve created and share it at this post or at the Discussion and Activity Board.

Think about:

  • What would you want to communicate to this person?
  • What objects would you place on the altar?
  • Why would certain objects be important?
