This project was inspired by a pretty good size bilingual group of students who signed up for art this year. They really wanted to do this. They loved learning more about this holiday and helping me improve my Spanish pronunciations as I presented the information.
All my students seemed to enjoy this one. We worked as teams to create the skulls by supporting our paper mache on balloons, and then cardboard forms we made ourselves. Group projects helped reduce the number of large projects. Clean up each day was pretty smooth- I have an AWESOME group of sixth graders who really cooperate when they need to!
Our colorful creations are displayed in our front display case and our library for all to enjoy.
