Designed to give students a taste of Frida Kahlo’s style, inspiration, and influences, this resource features 8 of her best-known works.
~A simple slide show of the 8 paintings. Great for initial “noticing” or for teacher to do a pre-reading discussion. Could also be useful for assessment activities!
~2 slideshows of the paintings AND descriptions in comprehensible Spanish (level 2+) to project or share via a password-protected platform with your students. There is a censored and an uncensored version due to nudity in one painting.
~2 reproducible 3-page student reading packets (same information from the slideshow). There is a censored and an uncensored version due to nudity in one painting.
~A quick 10-item comprehension activity/assessment in which students match the sentence to the painting being described. Answer key included.
~2 writing prompts for practice/assessment in which students are asked to view a new painting and use their new knowledge to speculate about what motivated Frida to paint them.
