Product Description
Bring a fun Hispanic culture lesson into your Spanish language classroom with activities about the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo! This incredible Frida Kahlo activity pack includes an authentic biography in Spanish, comprehension questions, an activity to help teach preterite vs. imperfect verb tenses, a unique guided self-portrait lesson, and a beautiful coloring sheet of one of her most famous paintings.

An engaging Spanish language informational text presents key information about Frida Kahlo's life, introducing her to students in an accessible way. A series of comprehension questions helps ensure that students have understood the text.

The text is then used alongside an exercise that teaches the difference between preterite and imperfect verb tenses.

Finally, the self-portrait activity leads the students through all of the symbolism in Frida's paintings, discussing emotions, settings, and why she has chosen certain objects. Students dive deep into her artwork and attempt to create a self-portrait that tells their own story. When they are finished, the class set of self-portraits are absolutely stunning on a bulletin board!

The packet also includes a coloring sheet of Frida Kahlo's own self-portrait, and a poster for the class bulletin board.

We've also included additional resources (children's books, links, and videos) to supplement the learning about this famous and beloved artist from Mexico.

This Spanish language packet is designed to support any Frida Kahlo lesson, Women’s History Unit, Mexican cultural studies, or any famous artist study, and it would perfect for Spanish teachers to use in their sub plans.
