Women's History: Folding Fun and Graphic Organizers

These foldables and graphic organizers make Women's History Month so much fun! Research doesn’t have to be boring! This gigantic unit contains short biographies for 34 famous American women along with folding activities and graphic organizers to bring these women to life for your students. That's less than 50 cents per person! The activities require students to share research and demonstrate understanding of character traits, main ideas and supporting details, comparing and contrasting, and synthesizing ideas. With this many fantastic women to study, each of your students can select a different woman, or you can study a different woman each day!

Because of size, this product is four separate PDF files combined into one zip file: one teacher’s guide and three sets of pages for the women according to the periods below. Each of the files has a clickable table of contents to make it easier to download the files you wish to use. I have also included generic copies of most of the organizers if you don't want to print out the individualized ones.

The 34 women are:
Colonial period to 1900 – Pocahontas, Anne Dudley Bradstreet, Abigail Adams, Betsy Ross, Deborah Sampson, Sacagawea, Elizabeth Blackwell, Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Clara Barton, Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson, Annie Oakley

1800’s-1900 – Nellie Bly, Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan, Jane Addams, Madame C. J. Walker, Juliet Gordon Low, Mary McLeod Bethune, Amelia Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt, Georgia O’Keefe

1950’s to present – Rosa Parks, Rachel Carson, Shirley Chisholm, Sandra Day O’Conner, Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Dolores Huerta, Mae Jemison, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey

There are 9 activities for each of the Famous American Women. You just pick the ones you want them to do, or better yet, let the students select the ones to complete!
