Did you know that March is Women's History Month? And I'm super excited to announce a new activity packet that I helped create for Multicultural Kid Blogs! I had such a great time working on this Women in World History Activity Pack together with my friend Annabelle from the Piri-Piri Lexicon.
If you've used my Famous Afro-Latinos or 10 Latinas in History packets, I know you'll really enjoy this new activity pack.
Designed for children ages 8 – 12 (or 3rd through 6th grade), our educational, no-prep packet includes:
• one-page reading passages featuring 20 women in world history, including Hispanic figures such as Sor Juana de la Cruz, Queen Isabella I, Celia Cruz, and others.
• a reading comprehension quiz for each reading passage
• additional comprehension worksheets that boost vocabulary, writing, and critical thinking skills
• and a recommended reading list for further research
The packet also includes answer keys for all the worksheets.
This packet highlights the following women:
• Isabel Allende
• Joan of Arc
• Coco Chanel
• Celia Cruz
• Sor Juana de la Cruz
• Marie Curie
• Amelia Earhart
• Anne Frank
• Indira Gandhi
• Jane Goodall
• Queen Isabella I
• Frida Kahlo
• Florence Nightingale
• Ellen Ochoa
• Eleanor Roosevelt
• Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
• Harriet Tubman
• Malala Yousafzai
You might also be interested in MKB's new Women's History Month Research Packet. This month-long unit for Women’s History Month incorporates the study of 20 women, five in each of four categories: Human Rights, Politics, Science and The Arts. (The two packets do not focus on the same 20 women, though there is some overlap.)
With an individual research project, oral presentation, creation of a unit-long lapbook-style packet, and a classroom timeline display, this fun and colorful product is designed to target 20+ Common Core Language Arts Standards for grades 2, 3 and 4.
You can find both of these educational packets on the MKB website or on their TpT store. They'll both be on sale today and tomorrow!
