Getting ready for Halloween and Day of the Day

Today I took four of our amazing Green Ambassadors to help deliver a class on Halloween and the Day of the Dead. The main learning outcome was to get students to think about the relationship between food, culture, and history. We talked about the (spooky) history behind the Jack o’ Lantern, as well as the much longer history of the Day of the Dead and the Marigold. In terms of an activity, the students designed their own creepy Jack o’ Lanterns, ready to be cut next week!
