Everyone needs some sub plans that they can use when their sub doesn't speak Spanish. This is all in English, but because it deals with Pablo Picasso, it falls under the cultural standard. Students will get a taste of the different styles of Picasso's work, and they'll learn a bit about his life. His womanizing was a big part of his life, and while I don't go into details about this, there is mention of him having four children with three different women and not always being faithful to his partners. There is absolutely nothing graphic, but I want to let you know so that you can take it into consideration for your particular audience. This resource includes:
-A four-page article about Picasso's life that includes information about his childhood and adolescence, his early work, Blue and Pink periods, Cubism, marriage to Olga, children, his politics and anti-war work. Within these pages are examples of the paintings that the text talks about.
-Two pages with six paintings, some larger versions of ones from within the article, and some different ones
-33 questions, some of which are simple factual questions and some which require students to give their opinions and/or compare/contrast the art.
-A key for the questions
To use this resource, I suggest that you make a class set of the article that students will use all day, as well as copies that students can share that are in color. Then you can make copies of the questions for each student.
When I used this resource with my students, I printed out several different 8 1/2 x 11 pictures of more of his famous paintings so that kids could get a better idea of the range of his artwork. Because I'm trying to work within the confines of fair use for TPT, I can't include as many as I would if I were doing it with my classes. If you have time, I suggest that you google a variety Picasso paintings from his different periods, print them in color, and put them up where students can see them.
