Women's History Month

It's women's history month, and I'm a bit late posting this but...

The English classroom is a great place to celebrate the contributions of women. Coming off of February I think teaching A Raisin in the Sun is a great way to incorporate both Black history and a female writer!



It's also a great time leading into April i.e. poetry month, to look at Dickinson.


Or, go the historical fiction route and look at Code Name Verity with your class. It has strong female characters and tells about how women were instrumental in WWII. And, it's written by a woman too!


And lastly, since Spring break is likely coming up soon and the kids are antsy here's a FREE time filler for your students. It's a crossword about women's history. It can be done as a research project too! Click the image below to download it from TPT!

Thanks for reading!
