Frida by Jonah Winter
An In-Depth Book for Grades 3-8
This series of original and unique activities focuses on Jonah Winter’s biographical account of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. This harrowing tells us of the little girl who would grow up to be one of the most prolific and influential painters of the 20th century.
This is a Collection of over 50 Pages of Unique Review Sheets, 2-point Rubric Assessment Questions, Worksheets, Story Boards, Graphic Organizers, Vocabulary Cards and various other Activities. The original items will work perfectly as a Part of a Unit of Study of Women in History. The activities also make excellent Bulletin Board Ideas! The materials provided can definitely be used for up to a 2 Week ELA Unit and are interchangeable between grade levels. You can easily differentiate your lessons in a variety of ways. Remember you need a copy of Frida by Jonah Winter, and it should be read-aloud to the children at least 2x. I actually typed up the story for my third grade classes so they could use it to answer the 2 pt. rubric questions, but that would be copyright infringement if included here. Upper grade students shouldn’t have a problem if you’re using this picture book as lead-in or pre-reading material for teaching conflict and theme. Thank you can enjoy!
