An ideal lesson for International Women's Day (8th March 2017) and for Women's History Month (March). The lesson focuses on discussing famous women from history, identifying their achievements and evaluating why they were so important. The aim is to raise awareness and understanding of the role played by women in helping to shape the world.
There are four optional independent tasks as part of the lesson, which can be used at the teacher's discretion. Full differentiation is built into each of these, with challenge activities and support sheets for those who need them.
The flexibility of the lesson means that I have been able to use it in Grades 1 to 5, but it could also be easily adapted for younger or older children.
*Teacher PowerPoint presentation
*4 activity support sheets
*Full planning, linked to history curriculum
