March is a powerful month for Women around the globe! It marks Women’s History Monthand as we have done the last few years, we want to honor the early leaders, change makers, and visionary women who have come before us. Take time this month to talk and reflect with your children and students about the accomplishments of these women and the impact they have had on our lives. See the National Women’s History Alliance to learn more about the 2022 theme – “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.”
A few activities, lessons, podcasts & books to dive into this month!

“These lesson plans are based on History Detectives episodes that examine artifacts which provide clues to how women have been integral in the visual arts, in fighting political causes, and on battlefields. They offer students opportunities to hold a history-based political convention, create visual arts designs, and do biographical research.”
