Lesson Plan

Can Girls Do That?

This Can Girls Do That? lesson plan also includes:

Why be limited by stereotypes? Young scholars examine a series of works of art, list the different ways boys and girls are represented, and then discuss the common stereotypes found in the works. They then search for art that does not feature these stereotypes. Finally, class members create a portrait that demonstrates that "Everyone Can!"
