In this fun and educational activity, students will enrich their knowledge about nine inspiring American women who were first in their field and solve a word search puzzle while improving their vocabulary and practicing spelling capabilities.
It is a fantastic activity for any English, and Social Studies class, Women’s History Month, and any other occasion.
As educators, it is our responsibility to present a comprehensive history to future generations and emphasize that the world, as it is today, is a product of the works and achievements of both men and women.
Although more than before, the official curriculum still lacks space for women’s history, stories about pioneering women, and their influence on society. Therefore, it is essential to add content about women proactively, give girls role models and examples to identify with, and let boys learn that women are equal, valuable, and have contributed to history like men.
Education is one of the significant ways to inspire and create a more equal society for us and future generations.
