We learned about the Dia De Los Muertes (AKA the Days of the Dead), which is a Mexican tradition honoring loved ones who have passed away. One tradition that has been practiced for a few hundred years is the creation of sugar skulls. Check out http://www.mexicansugarskull.com/support/dodhistory.html for the brief history of the tradition! Here are a few examples of what sugar skulls can look like (2-dimensional and 3-dimensional!), and student examples will be posted as soon as they are graded!
