Women’s History Month: Resources for Your Classroom

thinkcerca-ela-doodle

At the start of every March in the United States, we celebrate Women’s History Month. For the entire month of March, we celebrate the many accomplishments and contributions of Women in American History. This year, Kamala Harris made history as the first Woman and Woman of Color as Vice President. Progress is happening right now and in order to help you celebrate in the classroom, the Team at ThinkCERCA has curated a list of lessons to help you introduce your students to Women’s history not just in March, but throughout the school year.
