Day of the Dead


Death isn't so scary to those celebrating Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, the Mexican holiday in which the living remember and honor their deceased. This non-interactive and somewhat scholarly one-page site site looks at the history and culture behind the day, focusing on the tradition, the rituals, and special food. Because of the site's wordiness, teachers of younger children may want to keep it for themselves as a resource when preparing simpler materials for their students.
