March is Women’s History Month, which makes the perfect time to explore or review some pivotal points in history that have made a huge difference for women and the women that have sacrificed to make that difference.
A great place to start in your study of Women’s History Month is to create a timeline. This allows the student to see just how the history of women in America unfolded.
Another exciting way to study women’s history is a travel timeline. If you can take a few days to travel to some of these historic sites, it would make for an intensely real and memorable study.
Creating a photo collage or research collage of the notable women throughout history would be a perfect vignette for learning. You could research women who have been trailblazers in art, music, sports, science, and even politics. You could even make it personal and add a section for women who have been influential in your life. Including interviews would add a practical speech integration to the project.

Of course, any good unit study is going to have a strong foundation on books. Here are several sites we’ve found to be very helpful in providing quality books related to women’s history.
