Students read a one page history of Annie Oakley, answer 9 questions, and complete a creative task about creating a museum exhibit for Annie Oakley. This would be a great Women's History Month activity or as part of a unit on America from 1865-1920. The answers are not included because they are all opinion based. This would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--What do you think the purpose was in Annie Oakley having a stage name?
--Explain the meaning of Sitting Bull’s nickname for Annie.
--In what ways did Annie directly or indirectly empower women?
--Provide a description of what you think her husband was like and where might his progressiveness have come from to for him to step aside and let Annie shine?
--Write a one line slogan that would be used to advertise an Annie Oakley show coming to a town near you.
