La Catrina is an iconic figure associated with Día de Muertos in Mexico––but did you know that that was not always the case?

The heart of this resource is a set of four versions of an article about La Catrina and the original La calavera garbancera, each with a different level of text complexity so that it can be used with multiple levels of Spanish. 

The product includes:

  • Four articles written at different levels of text complexity 
  • One-page activity sheet for each level of text
  • A video option
  • Slideshow for shared readings
  • A song activity
  • A paperless glyph

Teachers that own our Level 2 Día de Muertos Flex plans will find two activities that overlap between the two resources (the song activity and glyph).
