Wondering How to Celebrate Women's History Month?

 Women's history month is upon us! 
How do you celebrate in the classroom?

Wondering How to Celebrate Women's History Month? This post has several ideas, resources, activities, and links to amazing ideas on celebrating women and empowering girls!

I love to start with books! I read books by women and about women.  I read books about women's stereotypes, and books about women's struggles. We explore biographies about famous women.

And we talk. A lot! We talk about the women they know, and the women they've heard of. We talk about what it means to be a woman and what makes women powerful!

Claudio from Two Boys and a Dad has many suggestions, for books about women in this post:  Inspiring Women Children's Books

The fight for the civil rights of women is an important part of American history.  I want my students to know about these inspiring, amazing and heroic women (and men) who made that possible.  I use various children's literature books during my read aloud to introduce heroes such as Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Bloomer, and more! Check out my blog post for the book titles and how I used them with my third graders.  #twoboysandadad #childrensliterature #commoncoreliterature #socialstudies
