El Pan de Muerto

What did I do without Pinterest before it existed???  I found this great visual to spark a conversation about El Pan de Muerto and the celebration of el Día de Los Muertos.  I didn’t make a handout for it as I think its a great warm-up and we do those digitally.

Here is the image

Here are some questions:

1.  ¿Te gusta el pan?

2.  ¿El pan que tú comes tiene alguna forma?

3.  ¿Qué significa la forma circular del pan de muertos?

4.  ¿Qué significa la cruz de lágrimas?

Have you taught the Day of the Dead? What resources do you use?  I’d love to actually make the bread with the students but we are no longer allowed to have food in the classroom 😦  This has been difficult because breaking bread with our students was a great way to spark cultural conversations.  Is this a policy at your school? How have you dealt with it?
