Women’s Day!

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.

Other possible plans for Women’s Day

My Women’s History Month will then be dedicated to Ruby Bridges this year. Rosa Parks was my Women of the year in 2015 and Rosie the Riveter in 2016! And what are you doing for this special day?
