West End Elementary School reading specialists Debra Aronson and Melissa Kulikowsky recently celebrated Women’s History Month with their fourth and fifth grade students by collaborating and exploring specific influential women from history.
The West End students were first motivated by an EdPuzzle video of famous women in history and then selected a historic woman to research. The students picked women such as Coco Chanel, Jane Goodall, Frida Kahlo and more to explore. They focused on the background information of these women, such as details of their lives, famous quotes and momentous events. After finishing their research, the students decorated a biography pendant with important facts and information about their influential woman. They then shared what they had learned with their peers.
