This set of research graphic organizers includes a diverse collection of 40 black women who have played a role in changing the world. 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. Graphic organizers 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! The graphic organizers are perfect for integrating literacy into other subjects such as social studies and they would make an awesome Black History Month or Women's History Month addition! They allow students to go beyond reading to really interact with the text.
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
Where are/were they from? (includes mapping component)
What lesson(s) can you learn from them?
Resources where you can learn more
