This is a self-portrait project I taught to my 7th grade students with influence of Frida Kahlo. This PowerPoint presentation can be edited to meet your needs, as well as adjusted to work with the materials that are available in your classroom.
My students use transparencies to trace photographs, canvas, and paint to create their projects, but this can be adjusted and made work for a lot of different / creative mediums.
This could work for grades 5th through high school. It was really enjoyed by my students.
Along with the examples of the project, I have included a few worksheets on Frida Kahlo, a clean up check list, and a seating chart :)
