Women's History Month Activities (With a Writing FREEBIE)


 
Womens' History Month Activities- reading and writing activities with social studies integration
 Women's History Month is throughout the month of March. It is incredibly important that we as educators help teach our students the importance of women in our history. Teaching each of these influential women and their impact in history will make a lasting impression on your students!
Today's blog post is all about reading resources for Women's History Month! 
We're going to look at fantastic read alouds or picture books, some more advanced chapter books for higher readers, online materials to learn, and some resources from TPT you can grab



Read Alouds and Picture Books
These are great books to either read to your class aloud, or put into their reading centers to read on their own or with partners. Some are specific to important women in history and areas of studies, while others focus on women in history in general. Each of the texts below are links to affiliate books on Amazon!

Online Videos and Materials
Very similar to my Black History Month blog post from last month, there are two websites that are simply incredible for teaching biographies. These two websites are my go-to's for science and social studies topics. Have you tried out Pebble Go or Brain Pop Jr.

There are tons of videos on Brain Pop for Women's History Month. These videos would be great to show one a day to showcase the many strong women in history. You could even set this as the technology assignment for the month and have students explore and learn on their own while they are technology time.

This is included in the Women's History Month category on BrainPop. It's titled Women's Suffrage and it really gives great insight into some of the struggles women have been through in history.

If you need a younger video for a younger set of kiddos, there are a few biography videos for women on Brain Pop Jr.

And Pebble Go has an incredible amount of biographies for women! They have them separated into categories such as athletes, first ladies, scientists, and more!



Biography Materials
These are my biography sets that I've made for TPT. They come with a reading passage, cut and paste timeline, research fact writing page, informational writing page, and a flip book with reading passage, comprehension questions, true and false sorting, and a writing page.
I have 12 women biography packs in my entire Biography Bundle. I have pulled them out of the mega bundle in case you didn't want all of them. And I've put them into a mini bundle to save you guys money!

FREE Writing Activity
This freebie will help students connect learning about strong women in history and present times with women in their lives. They will choose a strong woman that they know, whether its a teacher, tutor, friend, mother, sister, cousin, etc. They will illustrate them, describe them, identify why they are strong, and identify what they would like to say to them.
