Product Description
This amazing Frida Kahlo lesson includes an authentic biography plus comprehension questions, a unique guided self-portrait lesson, and a beautiful coloring sheet of one of her most famous paintings.

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!

This 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 (or ESL) to use in their sub plans. Finally, we've included additional resources (children's books, links, and videos) to extend the learning about this famous Mexican artist.

Learning about Frida Kahlo can happen any time of year, but here are some important dates to keep in mind:

September 15- October 15 Hispanic Heritage Month
Sept 16: Mexican Independence Day
March: Women's History Month
May 5: Cinco de mayo, commonly celebrated in the US
