    ETYMOLOGY UNIT 4 WORKSHEET AND TEST
     
    IN SUPPORT OF OUR SCHOOL PRODUCTION OF VOLVER AND IN ORDER TO INTRODUCE RAY BRADBURY TO OUR STUDENTS, WE WILL BE LEARNING ABOUT AND EXPERIENCING A PART OF MEXICAN CULTURE CALLED DIA DE LOS MUERTOS, THE DAY OF THE DEAD.  FOR THIS, YOUR CHILD WILL INTERVIEW YOU AND/OR OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS IN ORDER TO LEARN ABOUT THE LIFE OF, AND A FAVORITE STORY ABOUT, A BELOVED ANCESTOR.  HE OR SHE WILL ALSO NEED A PHOTOGRAPH (OR A COPY) OF THAT PERSON.  WITH THE INFORMATION GATHERED, YOUR CHILD WILL BE CREATING A POEM BOARD IN CLASS TO HONOR THIS LOVED ONE. 
     
    ON OCTOBER 31ST, THE POEM BOARD WILL BE  ASSEMBLED, SO ALL MATERIALS ARE DUE IN CLASS THAT DAY.
     
       *   COMPLETED FAMILY HISTORY FACT SHEET
       *   PHOTOGRAPH
       *   ROUGH DRAFT OF POEM
       *   ANY OTHER SUPPLIES TO BE INCLUDED
     
    ON NOVEMBER 1ST, THE TRIBUTE AND A BRIEF STORY ABOUT AN ANCESTOR WILL BE PRESENTED IN CLASS.  THIS IS A KEY ELEMENT OF THE TRADITION WHICH HONORS THE MEMORY OF LOVED ONES AND UNDERSCORES THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY!
     
    THIS CELEBRATION HAS SPECIFIC CUSTOMS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO INCLUDE IN THE EXPERIENCE, AND ANY HELP YOU CAN PROVIDE WOULD BE WONDERFUL!
