Note: I created a digital version of this lesson which is included in the cost of this product. I divided up the pages and left what a teacher would need for students including answer boxes. I hope it helps!

The teacher will need access to Youtube.com.

This one or two day lesson can stand alone or be combined with one of my Famous Artist biographies which include Pasek and Paul.

Need a quick emergency lesson plan? Or one for a substitute? Everything is provided for the busy teacher.
