Product Description
In this lesson, students explore the life of Frida Kahlo while simultaneously learning Spanish. I used this with my K-5 Spanish students. When I taught this, I used these resources in conjunction which a few Frida Kahlo books, which I mention on the first printable. My students LOVED this lesson. I hope yours do too. :)

Included in this pack is:
1. The main hand out describing Frida Kahlo's life, with Spanish vocabulary and the books I used with this lesson, listed on the bottom of the page.
2. Also, a fun, printable frame to use with the students to have them draw their self-portraits.
3. Lastly, a writing template with the Spanish phrases and lines after them. Students can use the lines to either translate the words/phrases (beginner students) or to fill in the lines with their own words in Spanish, creating a poem of sorts.

*In my classes, we read the stories as a whole group. I asked the students to pay attention to how they were alike and different, as well as which one they preferred and why. You could even extend this by doing a Venn Diagram with similarities and differences. Afterwords, we studied the vocabulary in Spanish and drew self-portraits, using words in Spanish to name the part of the face and hair. We also talked about words for different animals in Spanish, as Frida often drew animals in her self portraits.*
