It’s March, and you know what that means, Women’s History Month is here! There are many ways that you can incorporate women’s history month-themed activities into your classroom to celebrate. TeachHUB gave us a head start on brainstorming topics and activities that will show your students exactly what Women’s History Month is about.
Here’s one idea:
Give your students an opportunity to research and explore a woman in history’s life. Ask students to write a short biography. For example, if a student is intrigued by Amelia Earhart, he or she would write about Amelia’s childhood, how she became interested in flying and what she accomplished throughout her career. At the end of March when the paper is due, TeachHUB suggests hosting a Women’s History Month party, at which students will share their biographies.
Short on time?
Here’s an activity that will take less time: ask students to become reporters for a local newspaper. Have students brainstorm a list of women they look up to for their career, charitable contributions or humanitarianism. Place students in groups of two and ask them to write an article about one woman’s major accomplishment or idea.
