Self Portraits Frida Kahlo

This is a lesson from my student teaching experience. My cooperative teacher taught it with Kinders. Frida Kahlo is well know for her self portraits. I show this particular self portrait because of all the details she includes. I have students think about what she might be feeling. They make their own self portraits with feelings. If you don’t have multicultural construction paper have your students paint the paper their skin color. I had several skin color choices and it worked out great. Here are the results.
