Do you need new engaging Women’s History Month ideas for your class? Check out our 3 best ways to celebrate the month below!
1) Women’s History Month Songs
What about female scientists? Here is a Marie Curie biography song for that!
“She made her way out.”
“Lead us all the way through.”
“Only tired of giving in.”
You can also see the full Women’s History Month songs playlist for free right here!
Have your students create dances for any of the songs featured in our Women’s History Month songs playlist. Make it into a competition! See which students have the best moves that represent each influential woman in history during a class dance-off!
3) Skits and Plays
Have your students research the life of an influential woman in history and write a skit or play that explores important moments in her life. Check out this song about when Phillis Wheatley, the first published African-American poet, met General George Washington during the Revolutionary War for some ideas!
*BONUS Reading Activities Based on Rap Songs
If you enjoyed the songs above, then you’re going to love these reading activities! Based on our women’s history songs, these activities use the song lyrics to give students practice with a variety of reading skills such as identifying synonyms and antonyms, using context clues in text, sequencing events, and other critical skills. Check out all of the activities here!
