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.
