Monster project 2019The Monster Project done in Bellefonte Area High School Spanish teachers Emily Zimdahl-McManus and Victoria Butch’s classes isn’t meant to be scary, but rather to enhance vocabulary and promote creativity. Students are required to participate in the project where they create a body of their own design and label the body parts in the Spanish language. This is the seventh year of the project.
During this time of year, the students also celebrate Day of the Dead from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2. Also known as Día de Muertos, the holiday encourages families and friends of the dead to gather and celebrate their spiritual journey to the afterlife. For the classes, it ended with a class party where student brought in traditional Mexican-style dishes.
