Los Alebrijes - Spanish Project

11/4/22: Alebrijes are considered Mexican Spirit Animals. According to the pre-Hispanic traditions in Oaxaca, Mexico, everyone has an Alebrije from the moment of birth that guides them and help them communicate with nature. It was also linked to the divine because the goods were also linked to a specific animal. After studying about these animals, Mrs. Polly's Spanish 1 students created artwork that was inspired by their spirit animals found online with their birth dates, or simply following their heart and creativity. This activity was part of the ¨Dia de Los Muertos¨ celebration.
