This poster set includes 10 posters (5 Women in Science posters with two border options), each highlighting a significant woman in science. Women highlighted in this poster set include:
Also included in this resource are eight task cards (which could be used as bell-ringers) featuring quotes from each of the women profiled in this month's poster set.
These posters are a great way to spark a classroom conversation about prominent women in science. (I hang my posters in my classroom door window. My classroom is located in a "high traffic area." I love "catching" students looking at the posters and discussing them with their peers!
I teach United States History at the high school level. I infuse the contributions of women into the curriculum in a variety of ways including classroom discussions, videos, readings, etc. These posters are not intended to be the ONLY infusion of women's contributions into the classroom. They are intended to be a starting point.
I laminate my posters and task cards (to increase longevity and allow students to write responses on task cards using dry-erase markers.)
These posters can also be used to create bulletin board displays. I print my posters on brightly colored paper to create a beautiful bulletin board display.
