Make the most of the fact that March is Women's History Month with this creative activity that lends itself to a social studies unit as well as a language arts unit. Each student selects a famous woman to research and write about, then uses the information to make fact-filled mobile that can be displayed in class or around the school. This printable set features background information, links to print and online resources, and a list of interesting and accomplished women students can refer to when choosing their person to research. Also includes reproducible templates for creating the mobiles.
You may want to add the names of additional women to the list you provide students, for example: Rosa Parks, Shirley Chisolm, Malala Yousafzai, Oprah Winfrey, Ella Fitzgerald, Amelia Boynton, Michelle Kwan, Qui Jin, Mandukhai Khatun, Sally Ride, Corazon Aquino, and many others.
