From brilliant super-scientists to intrepid entrepreneurs, 100 Women Who Made History is a powerful introduction to remarkable women through time. It’s also an invaluable classroom resource to engage and inspire your students, support STEAM initiatives and spark cross-curricular projects.
To make your lesson planning easy and engaging, we’ve put together a free teacher’s guide. Matching up directly with the sections and historical categories in the book, the guide includes interactive classroom activities, insightful discussion questions and resources for student research. It offers accessible and age-appropriate prompts and ideas to get kids talking and spark their inquisitiveness.
Prompts and projects include:
• What kind of change matters most? Small group discussion and debate on types of accomplishments and historical change.
• STEAM Leaders: Research project on remarkable women from the sciences and the arts.
• Creative writing letter project: What would it be like to spend time with one of the women from the book?
Prepared by school librarian and Newberry Award Committee chairperson Kathleen Odean, the guide is the perfect launching pad for informative and inspirational lessons for Women’s History Month and beyond!
