Women's History Month

Not only is March a time of year when flowers start to bloom and the weather gradually begins to feel warmer, it's also a month where we celebrate important women pioneers from our country's history. Women's History Month gives children the opportunity to learn more about the impact amazing women have made on history, and how to celebrate these individuals that continue to push boundaries in the present day. Using interactive activities, engaging books and readers, and vibrant pieces of classroom décor, promote Women's History Month in your classroom this year to celebrate women pioneers and inclusivity!

Inspirational Books

Integrate Women's History Month into your lesson plans this year with a number of books and readers that promote women's history and educate children on the lives of women pioneers from different fields. Inspire students to take an interest in the growing STEM field with the  Women in Science and Technology series. This collection of biographies explores the lives of six women who made a resounding impact on medicine, engineering, space exploration and more. In addition to this, teach students how women can be leaders both on and off the field with the Women in Sports series. Learn how athletes like two-time Women's World Cup soccer champion and Olympic gold medalist 

Megan Rapinoe and the most decorated Olympic gymnast Simone Biles achieved their dreams, their accomplishments, and how they use their platforms to promote social causes like racial justice and mental health awareness. 

Motivational Classroom Décor

Integrating visual references into your classroom displays is a great way to teach children about Women's History Month. Using the  Amazing People: Inspiring Women Bulletin Board Set, young students can learn about 60 inspirational women with diverse backgrounds, ranging from artists, performers, and athletes, to activists, trailblazers, scientists and mathematicians who changed the course of their respective disciplines. This 60-piece bulletin board set provides year-round visual reference for students with inspirational women such as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, country singer and activist Dolly Parton, Malala, and more to use as a research opportunity to learn about different women pioneers, and uses vivid colors to create an inspirational and modern classroom décor theme.
