Celebrating Women’s Accomplishments

It’s always a great time for celebrating women’s accomplishments in history. March is the month we set aside for this.  There are so many women to study.  Here are some tips for lessons, and bulletin board ideas to help make March a great celebration of women.

Pick a field

Some years it’s fun to celebrate women who’ve made achievements in a specific field like science or math.

Celebrate family members

Students may not think of their family members as history makers, however, history is made everyday.  Allowing students to interview their mothers, grandmothers, and aunts is a great opportunity for your class to learn more about the amazing people in their own families.  It’s also a great way for students to learn how everyday people impact the world around them.  Celebrating women’s accomplishments should absolutely encompass the women we see everyday.

Remember women of other countries and cultures

It’s important to remember the achievements of women all of over the world.  This is also a fun way to incorporate women’s history month into other Social Studies units you may be studying in the month of March.

Use Mentor Texts

There are so many amazing pieces of literature that can help your students visualize the times women lived in, and what truly led them to their accomplishments.  A couple of examples include: Only Passing Through by Anne Rockwell on the life of Sojourner Truth.  Another great woman to read about is Helen Keller.  I recommend the read aloud Helen’s Big World: The Life of Helen Keller (Big Words) by Doreen Rappaport. There are so many great works of literature that can truly help your students connect with the people you’re studying.

Study a variety of women

It’s nice to study as many women as time will allow.  Mentor texts can help with this, as well as a variety of other resources.  My Women’s History Month Bundle covers five great women in history.  It’s also makes a beautiful women’s history month bulletin board.  Whichever resources you choose to use, make sure that you have a nice amount of women that you’re studying in class.  For tips on how to teach difficult parts of history, click here.
