It's March 1st, and that means that Women's History Month is here!
While it is important to remember and celebrate the achievements of women all the time, I'm glad we have a month dedicated to it to help us all remember to actively learn about the contributions women have made to world history. Too often their stories and successes are left out of the history books.
So, if you are looking for resources to celebrate this month with your children or students in the classroom, take a look at this beginner list below. More to come throughout the month!
Multicultural Kid Blogs has a great Women in World History Activity Pack for kids ages 8 to 12. I was part of the team that created this packet that highlights 20 women with one-page reading passages and a comprehension quiz for each one. There are also worksheets that boost vocabulary, writing, and critical thinking skills.
MKB also has the following must-read articles:
And, of course, we must include Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz! This printable is for introducing her to little children.
And this one-page reading passage is for older children.
And finally there's my Women in History Fandex. The fandex sets are just so much fun. With lots of ways to use them. Directions for fandex assembly and use, plus two activities, as well as individual worksheets, cut-outs and answer key included.
