This writing activity can be done in Spanish or English, depending on your focus and the level of the students. It's a great way to introduce students to one of Spain's greatest artists, and to add culture to your class.
Students first describe and write their interpretations of 6 different Dali paintings. They then research each to obtain more information about each. Included:
- 2 pages with the 6 paintings for students to write their descriptions and interpretations
- 2 pages with the 6 paintings for students to write their researched information
- 3 pages, each containing 2 enlarged paintings with QR codes for researching each painting
- 1 page with links and QR codes for researching each painting, copied 2 per page for student handouts, if desired. Note, as of 9/15, the QR code for the Manhattan Skyline is not an active link. I have been unable to find a suitable replacement link thus far. I may ultimately have to modify the task for that painting, or substitute a different painting.
Use this as a homework assignment, a partner activity, or project it and have students write descriptions and interpretations on the Smart Board.
