Quick Ideas for Summer Learning through Wonder Women:
Bring out the performer in your child. Have them view these ET videos with an actress who created a one-woman play about the life of Harriet Tubman and then choose a woman, either current or past, that they admire to research and create a first person performance about.
Got a kid who’s an aspiring filmmaker, documentarian, or writer? Inspire them to make a video or written biographic profile featuring a woman in history or a woman in their life by viewing these ET videos.
What’s it like to be a woman in a certain career? Inspire your young learner through these ET videos.
Let your learners express their interest in history by creating an outdoor walking tour featuring plaques and pictures highlighting women in history and women living today that they admire. Have them use poster board, markers, dowel rods and other supplies to create the “historic markers” to place around your yard for the tour. Check out these ET videos for some possible people to feature on the tour.
