Larissa and I have decided that we would like to do art around the world as part of our homeschooling. That is the beauty of homeschooling, flexibility.
It took me a while to find a globe but I finally did at Books a Million.
For our first project I decided on Day of the Dead/
Dia de Los Muertos. It is celebrated in Mexico on November 1 and 2. First we learned a little about Mexico then the history of Day of the Dead. I learned a lot myself.
For art we learned about symmetry. It is nice how you can learn so much with one little lesson.
We had a little fun with supplies as well.
This is a nice link for information on Day of the Dead for anyone who is interested.
I am creating these lessons myself so if anyone has any country/art suggestions please mention them to me.
