Day of the Dead–Día de los Muertos


Our class has been learning about the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico where families honor their loved ones who have passed away.

Rather than posting lots of information and facts about the holiday, I am going to post several good websites where you can learn more about the holiday. Our class will then do the research and post their information here on the blog.

I hope you enjoy learning about Dia de los Muertos!

Great DOD websites:

    I think this was the best trip ever especially because I was there with people I know.I loved hiking and seeing things like fittler crabs,birds and other things.But the best thing was going with Ms.Lenahan.

    1. A groundhog is the largest member of the squirrel family:Another name for a groundhog is woodchunk or Marmota monax.
    2. I think the famous Punxsutawney live in a cage in a house.
    3. The lengend of the groundhog is if the groundhog sees it’s shadow it is 6 more weeks of winter, and if the groundhog doesn’t see it’s shadow spring will be coming soon.
    4. Yes, the groundhog will see his shadow so it will be 6 more weeks of winter.
