Teach kids about Malala, who was the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014! Her life is a symbol of courage as she fights for education for women. A movie about her life was released October 2, 2015.

Malala: How one girl was a threat to the Taliban is a teaching resource for units on courage, education, and the treatment of women. In this unit, students can compare an article about Malala to her first-person blog posts, hold a classroom debate about education, find main ideas and key details in the article, get a coloring sheet and use world event notebook illustrations. (Note: There are 29 pages in this download, but I only counted the newest version, which is 17.)
