Day of the Dead- Grade 5

Day of the Dead combines the ancient Aztec custom of celebrating ancestors with All Souls' Day, a holiday that Spanish invaders brought to Mexico starting in the early 1500s.

The holiday, which is celebrated mostly in Mexico on November 1 and 2, is like a family reunion—except dead ancestors are the guests of honor. Day of the Dead is a joyful time that helps people remember the deceased and celebrate their memory.

Pete the Cat

Kindergartners used simple shapes to draw Pete the Cat,
inspired by author Eric Litwin and illustrator James Dean.
