    This set of graphic organizers features 40 historical and modern women who have contributed to history in various ways. This product was inspired by Vashti Harrison's best-selling picture book "Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History." This resource would be a great way to help your students really think about these women's lives after they read about them in the book. While the book is a great start for learning about these women, the graphic organizers require students to go beyond Harrison's text. They are a perfect way to ensure your students are keeping their information organized and focusing on the most important aspects of the person they're studying. This activity is great for biography projects and can easily serve as a note-taking tool for an essay or presentation. It can also serve as the biography project itself! These graphic organizers are perfect for integrating literacy into other subjects, especially social studies, and they would make an awesome Black History Month or Women's History Month addition! Students will benefit from the experience of learning about these diverse figures because the organizers allow students to go beyond reading to really interact with the chosen text as they determine which facts are relevant.

    Each 2-page graphic organizer has space for the following information about each figure:



    •Important people in their lives

    •Childhood (how and when did they grow up?)

    •Education & career

    •Challenges they faced

    •Major life events (includes timeline component)

    •Where are/were they from? (includes mapping component)


    •Personal characteristics

    •What lesson(s) can you learn from them?

    •What set them apart from others who lived during their time


    •Fun fact(s)

    •Glossary/Words to Know

    •Resources where you can learn more
