Religious Ed - Family Education - Course: Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead
Family Education - 1 Lesson

Objective: Students will learn about the significance and customs of the Day of the Dead.

Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a series of commemorative days dedicated to those who have died. It is celebrated generally between Halloween, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, and coincides with the Catholic holy days of All Saints (Nov. 1) and All Souls (Nov. 2).

Day of the Dead is actually divided into two distinct holidays, the first being Dide los Inocentes, which is dedicated to children on Nov. 1, and Dide los Muertos on Nov. 2, which is the actual Day of the Dead. Both days taken together are collectively referred to as the Day of the Dead, and celebrations can begin as early as Halloween (Oct. 31).

GOD GAVE YOU THE POWER TO LEARN ANYTHING

Each class is segmented into short, easy-to-understand lessons tailored for each grade level. Each lesson comes with a video, a complete lesson plan, a study guide and an assessment. Objectives and expected learning outcomes are also included. Teachers are invited to use these lessons as a supplement to their existing curriculum, or as a centerpiece. All lessons are built using magisterial content including the New Jerusalem Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2nd ed), and other orthodox Catholic sources.

Catholic Online School takes learning out of the classroom and puts the control right into the hands of the student.  It is a self-paced learning system that gently guides any student through the learning process.  With the lack of quality education that many countries are suffering from at the moment, Catholic Online School truly could not have come about at a better time.
