Spanish 2 Class Makes Sugar Skulls

     Mrs. Noble's Spanish 2 class is celebrating the holiday "The Day of The Dead" by making sugar skulls.
     According to the website nationalgeographic.com, this celebration is a mash-up of pre-Hispanic religious rites.
     The sugar skulls are made of sugar, meringue powder. powered egg whites, and water, which all are mixed together and placed in a mold, shaped like a skull. The meaning for making these is to represent "loved ones that have passed" said Mrs. Noble. Mrs. Noble also said that they are edible depending on if you paint or put glitter on them.
    "Students enjoy this project because it's more fun, than working and learning," said Mrs. Noble. Hailey Watson a student of Mrs. Noble's said, "I love the fact that I get to be involved in a project that I'm not familiar with and have the opportunity to learn about the history that comes with it."
     The projects that Mrs. Noble does with her class gives students the opportunity to have fun as they learn. Another one of Mrs. Noble's students pretty much summed up the class, Adelia Fernau said, "It explores other cultures and diversities and helps connect with them, and it's just fun!"
