Dia de los Muertos – the Day of the Dead – is a holiday celebrated on November 2nd throughout Latin America. Day of the Dead altars, also known as ofrendas (offerings), are constructed and adorned to remember, honor and please the dead, and are a central symbol of the Dia de los Muertos in Mexico. Seňora Alvarez's Spanish 2, 3 and 4 classes created an altar and learned all about the symbolism of each item displayed. Students had the opportunity to honor a deceased loved one and a Hispanic celebrity by placing their photo on the altar and sharing a little about them with the class.
