Peterson SchoolMexico City, Mexico 3rd Grade Calmecac del Pedregal, which means “School for Noble Aztecs”
Mexico City is one of the biggest cities in the world. We have lots of things to see and do. Here is the pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan. It is more than 2000 years old. The Angel of Independence is a symbol of Mexico City.
Best of both worlds Our school is very proud to be bi-cultural and bi-lingual! We celebrate Halloween and the Day of the Dead “Dia de los Muertos”. This was a Pumpkin Parade that the kids in Pre-first made. The pumpkins were so fun, lots of different kinds.
Day of the Dead This is a picture a our day of the dead altar. In Mexico, we celebrate the dead on November 2nd. People make altars for people who have died in their family. We put a picture of the person, food and drinks that they liked and representatives of the 4 elements: earth, wind, fire and water. The colored paper shows wind moving, candles for fire, glass of water and the yellow flower “cempasúchitl”is a sign of earth.
