Ann Bancroft is the second unit in my "Women in Science" product line.
Students will read a passage about Ann Bancroft, her life and contributions to science and women explorers. Ann is an amazing woman explorer who overcame a learning disability and showed perseverance.
This unit will expose students to women in STEM careers. Ann will even show students that you can overcome anything including a disability! And that STEM careers can be open to anyone.
There is not only a reading passage but the unit also includes a teacher outline, comprehension questions, notes-taking page for use with a documentary or video (links included) and a letter writing prompt. Students will actually write to Ann Bancroft's Foundation!
