This set includes 4 cootie catchers with trivia related to International Women’s Day and National Women’s History Month. The first cootie catcher features questions about the history of International Women’s Day. The second, third and fourth explore notable women in STEM fields, politics and activisim.
This set includes the names of 24 influential women. A fifth, blank cootie catcher is also included for students to create their own questions about women they admire.
To begin the activity, students must fold the cootie catchers. In pairs the first partner can have the other choose a vocabulary word on the outer flaps. The first partner spells out that word while moving the flaps in and out. The second partner can then choose a number and then another number while the first moves the flaps for each count. The second partner can then choose a final number that reveals a trivia question to the first partner. The first partner should hide and ask this question aloud to the second, as the answer is included underneath. Partners can then switch roles.
Answer recording sheets are also included.
