Hello, all my HHT readers, welcome to your one-shop stop to all things fun and educational. Today we’re going to keep it short but we’re going to keep it bustling! Why? Because it’s women’s history month and there’s no time better to teach our little learners about the equality, strife, and betterment brought about by women for women!
Why Women’s History Month Is Important
Women’s history month much like black history month, started as a simple celebratory week. However, in 1987 a law was passed that designated the entirety of March as Women’s history month. A month where we celebrate the vital role women have played throughout history. I mean it doesn’t take more than the first chapter of any history book to learn how important men have been. Their role has been painstakingly documented, but that’s not so true for women. While we do live in a progressively better world today, we should never forget about the challenges overcome to change the status of women as second-class citizens in much of history.
4 Activities for Women’s History Month
• Reading activities with important women in history as the subject.
• Change the class décor to emphasize the achievements of important women.
• Have a meaningful daily quote from women in history.
• Discuss the importance of equality.
It is important to remember that women’s history month is not directed at just the female demographic. It’s meant to raise awareness in males alike. So don’t let any of the children feel left out. It’s a month to take pride in and everyone should have their heads high for what women have achieved and what more they can achieve.
