These daring women paved the way for many other women in their fields. Use the activities in this packet during African-American History Month, Women's History Month, or during a biographies unit to introduce your students to these amazing adventurers. For each woman, I have included a poster, biographical information, an original poem, quotations, and two pages of questions to check comprehension. I've also included Venn diagrams to encourage comparison of character traits, as well as directions and pages for a research project to encourage students to find out more about other trailblazers.
