March is National Women's History Month and March 8th is International Women’s Day. Teach your students about the accomplishments of prominent women in U.S. history with this lesson in which they will analyze inspirational quotes, celebrate female inventors, and acknowledge the great women in their own lives.
Students will be able to describe the contributions of women in our history and analyze their quotes.
Students begin by learning about Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. Then they can come up to the board to complete a word search with words like “celebrate,” “women,” and “mother.” Finally, students think of some of the women in their own lives who they would like to celebrate.
Students analyze quotes spoken by Amelia Earhart, Maya Angelous, Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Next, they learn about prominent women including Susan B. Anthony, Maya Angelou, Jane Goodall, Alice Ball, Simone Biles, and Bethany Hamilton. Students will also learn about different women inventors and their life-changing inventions which include the life raft, the fire escape, the dishwasher, and the electric refrigerator.
Check student understanding with ten multiple-choice and true/false questions.
Students reflect on why celebrating women is important and recap some of the important contributions of women in history. To conclude, students choose a female role model and list words to describe that woman. They also share what this person has taught them.
The lesson includes a printable worksheet for the closing activity.
