Teaching Ideas and Resources for Women's History Month

Motivate student learning this month by celebrating the accomplishments of women and amazing events in history.  There are some ideas for history and non-history teachers alike. 


Here are some places to start your planning:

Exhibits on influential women of the last 100 years, women's influence in aviation, suffragettes, inventors, and great portraits of women artists. Exhibits include suggestions on how to integrate into your lessons.

The theme for the Woman's History Project for 2011 is"Our history is our strength". The women's history project combines resources from the Library of Congress, Smithsonian Institute, National Gallery of Art and others to help teach about the amazing contributions of women in our nation.

An interesting article about women overlooked during the civil rights movement. 

For lower school students check out, Woman Who Changed History from Scholastic. Some great ideas to introduce younger students to the important accomplishments of women in history.
