Let’s celebrate women! I sometimes wish there were many Women’s Days and maybe a Men’s Day too. But I’m happy to share exceptional women’s stories with my students. To discover what I teach on March 8th, please read through.
Thursday March 8th: International Women’s Day
On Thursday, unfortunately, only my 3e will have a special lesson about Women. And I will then launch our lesson on Ruby Bridges. I’ll have a « history of arts » lesson in centers. My students, gathered into 3 main groups will receive a document related to Rosie the Riveter. These documents are:
- Rockwell’s painting,
- the « We can do it » campaign poster
- a modern Rosie created by Abigail Gray Swartz.
Students’ activities on Women’s Day
I want my students to describe and analyze the role of women during World War Two. At the end of the class, they’ll be given a copy of this document to present a biography of their choice.
