This unit of study for Women’s History Month is engaging with its different activities. To start, students go on a hunt to find short bios that match the people we will be talking about. Students fill out a sheet and have it checked to see if they are right. The first 3 people to get them all correct get an advantage-first choice of the holiday and person they will research. After the first 3 people have "won", we go over the bios and students select which holiday and who they will research. This research leads to a creating of a national holiday that highlights the woman’s accomplishments. Students then create a page for the classroom scrapbook about their woman and her accomplishments. The last part of this unit is the creation of a PowerPoint that has students work together in small groups to highlight one woman by giving a presentation about her life, impact to the U.S., why she deserves her own federal holiday and a description of that holiday. At the end, students have a debate about which woman should get the holiday and then vote for their final say. The winning group “wins”-it can be something academic or something silly as their reward.
