About this Women’s History Month Booklet

This booklet was designed to expose your children to inspirational women they might not have heard of.

The pages are broken into categories. Each page contains pictures and names of the women in the category.

This is something fun for those children who enjoy coloring as a relaxing activity.

I am also envisioning it being used in other ways. Children can research and write important pieces of information around the clip-art of each person. I would encourage them to include what the person is best known for. Another option is to include a birthdate and country they were born in.
