Product Description
"I believe in pink. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." Audrey Hepburn (British actress ~ 1929 - 1993)


Why is pink a girly color ?

What does Mamie have to do with that ?


Here's a way to easily weave some history and fashion into your lesson to 'Teach Across The Curriculum'.


Mamie Eisenhower is usually overshadowed by her more famous husband, but it is perhaps a little known fact that she was quite influential in making the color pink a girly color.


These 20 items explain how this evolved, are in English, and are colorfully illustrated.


I show these pages on my overhead projector and have a student read each point out loud, explaining Mamie's connection to the color pink and popularizing its spread into more areas of American life than just fashion.


Those 'Pinkalicious' books are a reminder, even today, of how perfect pink was for the president's spouse. (27 pages)


* OF SPECIAL NOTE *
I have created my products as Word documents because that is how I use them. They are unlocked so teachers can change vocabulary words or modify things if they wish.

If you prefer a different format for the overhead, below are some suggestions.


To Make A Slide Show In ActivInspire
If you use ActivInspire, you can save the Word document as a pdf (this is easily done with the newer versions of Word), then you can simply import the pdf to ActivInspire and have a document for that format.


To Make A Slide Show In PowerPoint
If you prefer to use the PowerPoint format, you can easily convert a Word document to a PowerPoint.

This link explains it clearly: 'Creating A PowerPoint From A Word Document.'
