Nicaraguans did not much celebrate DÃa de los Muertos where I lived, and since I have not spent much time in Mexico, where the tradition originates and is most practiced, I’m pretty ignorant about the upcoming festivities. I would therefore like to request links and suggestions on how to teach DÃa de los Muertos to my Spanish students, ages 7-13. I believe our high school Spanish teacher will have an altar for childrens’ souls that we can visit. Other than that, the only thing I’ve found so far isÂ one (admittedly very rad, but not helpful to my situation) video. Por favor, send me to your songs, sites, and skeletons in the comments below. Gracias.
Teach me something about DÃa de los Muertos, por favor!
