What educators are saying

Our whole school used this resource. I had a lot of good feedback from other teachers that their classes enjoyed learning about the women on the cards.
I always love using scoots in the classroom because the students love to move around and they learn a lot!


Deepen your students' knowledge of the contributions and achievements of living legends and trailblazers in women's history in a fun and engaging way! This set of 24 task cards features a fact about each featured individual that acts as a clue for students to solve. This resource is a great addition to your Women's History month lessons, and would also be a great way to lead discussions and create research opportunities throughout the course of the school year.

Women from a variety of areas like politics, sports, music, science, and acting are spotlighted. What a wonderful way to teach unfamiliar parts of history or to learn how much your students already know!
