Women’s History Read Alouds

Books are a great resource for introducing your students to important women from history. You can create anchor charts for each person you read about to organize the information your students discover. Add these read-alouds to your seasonal library shelf for students to browse throughout the month. Check out some read-aloud ideas below.

  • Mae Among the Stars – A book about Mae Jemison
  • A is for Awesome! 23 Iconic Women Who Changed the World – An ABC book of iconic women
  • Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean’s Most Fearless Scientist
  • Flying High: The Story of Gymnastics Champion Simone Biles
  • Dinosaur Lady: The Daring Discoveries of Mary Anning, the First Paleontologist
  • The Girl with a Mind for Math: The Story of Raye Montague

Women’s History Research Activity

Take some time to take a closer look at women who shaped history by completing a research activity. Students can research, organize information, create a craft, and present their project to the class. Simply Kinder’s Historical Women set has everything you need for your students to discover some remarkable women. Grab your set HERE and take a closer look at Helen Keller, Kamala Harris, Jane Goodall, Clara Barton, and Amelia Earhart.

You can choose one inspiring woman to focus on as a class or students can choose which one they would like to learn more about.

Use the reading passages to gather important facts about the women. Trace one of the graphic organizers onto chart paper to organize facts as a class or students can make notes on individual organizers.

Students can write about their chosen person on the writing paper once they are done researching. Assemble the included craft to provide a visual with the research projects and hang these for others to view (these make a great bulletin display).

Allow time for students to share their projects with their classmates. You can invite others to come to hear your students share or even record short videos to share with families.

Important Women Interviews

Have students interview an important woman in their life (mom, grandmother, aunt). Students can use questions that you brainstorm as a class to interview their chosen person. Students will learn about the accomplishments of the women closest to them.

This is also a great activity to conduct as a class. Invite women from the school or community to come in for a whole class interview. Students will ask questions you create as a class, and you can assist students with recording the responses. Take pictures of your volunteers and create a display of the women that share with your class.

Easy Readers

Include some easy readers about important women as part of reading activities. Simply Kinder’s Women’s History Easy Readers found HERE provides information about inspiring women in an easy-to-read and understand format.

These books can be read as a whole group and make a great companion to the research activity mentioned above. Use these easy readers to gather more information about the women your students are researching.

They can also be used in small reading groups for a focus on comprehension. Have students highlight important facts as you are reading each easy reader. Use the comprehension sheets as a guide to deepen your understanding of the content.

Include these books in your classroom library and let students choose a few to take home.

Women’s History Month Paper Bag Puppets

Use the craft pieces from Simply Kinder’s Historical Women research set to create paper bag puppets. Students can glue the craft pieces on paper lunch bags to make the puppets. Use the puppets to role-play or as a tool for students to share what they have learned about each woman.
