Just a quick shout out for some excellent resources for March’s Women’s History Month. The National Women’s History Museum web site has Educational Resources including quizzes, timelines, and lesson plans. I received the following information in a press release.
The National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) is pleased to announce that "Honoring Amazing Young Women in History," a PowerPoint presentation for educators, is now available. The presentation follows NWHM’s Young and Brave: Girls Changing History cyberexhibit, an online exhibit featuring girls and young women who have made significant achievements at an early age in the fields of science, business, social reform, art and more. The presentation includes interesting information on a variety of young females, including Shirley Temple, Charlotte Forten Grimke and Pocahontas.
An accompanying guide provides educators with information to share with their students and use as a basis for curriculum development and classroom activities. The program also includes many motivational quotes from adult women of achievement and a short quiz.
The presentation offers educators an opportunity to celebrate Women’s History Month in March while providing inspiration as well as information on women’s history that could be integrated into the curriculum all-year-round. This exhibit will motivate young girls and boys to explore their potential.
