Teaching About Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos is one of the most popular topics on the Vamos a Leer blog. We’ve written numerous posts on lesson plans, fiction and non-fiction books, and other online resources that will help teachers explore this topic with their students.

For a list of relevant, exemplary books, see Kalyn Finnell’s Reading Roundup of “10 Children’s Books About Día de los Muertos.”

In addition to what we’ve shared on the blog, our office (the UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute, or LAII) has developed extensive curriculum materials to support teaching about Día de los Muertos. To learn more about these materials, visit the LAII website or click on the thematic guide or individual lesson plans below.

Curriculum

The complete guide is available for downloading or previewing. We have also separated the individual lessons plans (below) for quick reference.

Complementary Resources

In addition to the curriculum guide, the LAII was proud to support the NHCC in developing a visually-rich and informative website which explores the rituals of remembrance and historical origins associated with the holiday. We encourage you to visit the full website or browse for the most relevant section below.

  1. Hi there. We can’t access these links. Our Spanish Teacher is very interested on them because she gives a “Dia De Los Muertos” lesson plan every year in our school. Thanks in advance!
