Herricks Middle School’s Language Immersion students participated in educational activities based on Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
They constructed decorations such as miniature skulls, drawings, photos, flowers, perforated paper, etchings, and Day of the Dead bread, water, salt and skeletons. These items and more were used to adorn altars that are traditionally assembled in honor of this day.
Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico that honors the deceased. It was observed from Oct. 31-Nov. 2.
