Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter known for her many portraits and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico.  She was not only an artist but also an activist.

Frida is one of the many women we can celebrate during the month of March – Women’s History Month. Our word of the month is persistence.  Our book of the month celebrates 13 women from around the world – She Persisted. In honor of this occasion we would like to celebrate a few female legends and/or a few personal “sheroes” with this month’s challenge.

The Paper Doll Challenge:

  1. Research  Women Who Changed History and Women’s History Month from the Library of Congress
  2. Select a female legend OR pick your own “shero.”
  3. Create a paper doll with a printout of the person with layered paper plates or construction paper.
  4. Each paper plate layer should have an important information about this woman – Name and Timeline, Famous Quote, Her impact on the world.
  5. Use a pipe cleaner to string the layers together.
  6. Color, cut and tape the printout of your “shero.”
  7. Bring your paper doll to school for our display and/or share your doll and information on our Frida Kahlo Paper Doll Challenge.

DUE: Friday, March 19th
