This bundle contains the following two companion products. Learn about important people in history from the Person of the Day Cards and then test what you have learned by seeing if you can match the facts to the each person’s sorting mat.
This is a set of 60 daily cards to teach about one woman in history each day. From Sappho to Queen Victoria to Eleanor Roosevelt to Anne Frank to Malala Yousafzai to 55 others in between.
Each card contains their name, picture, and years of life on the front. On the back is a detailed summary of what they were known for and a few facts about their lives. Women from a wide range of countries and subjects (art, sports, science, women’s rights, entertainment, etc.) are included.
The 3 x 3 inch cards are numbered for each day of the month so that one new person can be discussed each day and added to a calendar display. Using the cards this way, you have two months of material. Many of the cards can be used as a jumping off point to study more about the person, time period and/or subject matter.
Need a fun, hands on activity for students to review their knowledge of Women in History? These sorting mats will challenge students to recall the information they have studied and use their critical thinking skills to fill in the information they don’t know. By using both hands as well as their language, visual and critical thinking skills, they will engage their whole brain during this activity.
This set contains sorting mats for 30 women, divided and color coded into sets of five. The women chosen span several hundred years in history, lived in various areas of the world, and contributed to our world in a variety of ways. There are authors, activists, artists, world leaders, scientists and more!
Students will sort through the facts and match them to each of the five women in that given set. There is a picture of each woman, time lived, place born, and what they are known for. There are also two additional facts per person that include a variety of interesting information.
Which author was family friends with Ralph Waldo Emerson?
Which world leader was known as the ‘Iron Lady’?
Who was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize?
Which artist originally studied to become a doctor?
And so much more! An answer key is included for students to self-check their work.
Print and prep once and then use for years. Not only great for Women’s History Month, but can be used all year as part of a history curriculum.
