**These Person of the Day Cards are also in our Women’s History Bundle.**
Learn about sixty different women in history in just five minutes a day with these fun cards! Perfect for Women’s History Month in March! Or as part of history lessons any time of the year.
The Women’s History Cards include…
Sappho to Queen Victoria to Eleanor Roosevelt to Anne Frank to Malala Yousafzai to 55 others in between. From Queens to scientists to the writers to activists.
The front of each card shows a picture of the woman with their name and years of birth and death. On the back is a short, detailed summary of what she is known for, where she is from, what type of work she did, and other historical information about her.
begins with the poet, Sappho born in Greece in the 600s BCE and ends with Coco Chanel, a French fashion designer from the early 1900s. Set two starts with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, born in 1884 and continues through the activist, Malala Yousafzai.
The 3 x 3 inch Women’s History cards are numbered for each day of the month and can be displayed in a calendar. Learn about one woman each day throughout the month for two full months. Use them all this year or set aside one set for next school year.
As you learn about the history of each woman, you may find some that you want to do more research about. Or at the end of the month, children can pick from the thirty women you have learned about to write a biographical report.
At the end of each week, you can have a short, fun quiz about the women in history you learned about during the week. Who was a sharpshooter in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show? Who was the first woman Prime Minister of the UK? Students can pick from the women on display to test their memory. Or make it harder by asking what a specific woman is known for.
