Students throughout West End Elementary School kicked off Women’s History Month by exploring different influential women from the past. Classes heard nonfictional stories about specific women such as Harriet Tubman and Frida Kahlo, which was followed by reflective activities. Fourth and fifth graders created their own comic strips of a woman that they learned about. Using the website storyboardthat.com, they edited and placed characters, scenes and more. Through these unique lessons and activities, West End students learned that these diverse, resilient women are responsible for much of our society today.
