What is included in this digital Women’s History Research Project?

Students will first learn how to use the text features in an informational text including the table of contents and index.
Then, students will be assigned a notable woman to research. Students will have a Women’s History Research Project Journal that they will use as a guide as they research female historical figures and their assigned person. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!
Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a report/presentation and a poster with a hand drawing of their assigned person along with their personality traits. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to see the posters and what they’ve learned about women in history (optional).

You will get:

  • Teacher Info Pages: This includes a sample unit outline, grading rubric, and lesson plans for internet research, intro lesson, research journals, and final projects to make implementing these activities effortless.
  • Book research/ text features worksheets: Students will review other text features including a glossary, titles, headings, photos, captions, graphs/charts, and special print. They will also compare and contrast the table of contents and index to deepen their knowledge of both.
  • Internet research worksheets: These worksheets will familiarize your students with how to find credible sources on the internet for research and help them create a plan for their own research.
  • Women in History Cards Cards with the name and clip art of many noteworthy women’s historical figures. You can use these to easily assign students a person to research.
  • Research Journals: The research journals will guide the students throughout their research. There is one question on each page for the students to find the answer to and respond to digitally. Pre-written pages are included, plus blank ones to add your own questions to adapt this project to fit your needs.
  • Women’s History Leader Poster & President Report Instructions Lesson plan for the student’s final project is included and easy to follow.
  • Poster Example  We have included a photo example of the final project’s poster activity so that your students will know exactly what is expected from them from the start.
  • Parent Letter & Invitation: Keep the parents in the loop! Let them know what is going on with the unit, and invite them to see the student’s hard work.
  • Final Women’s History Research Project Report Pages and info: A final report page is included as well as examples and lessons for their final project with grading rubrics to go along with the final project so that assessing each student’s work is simple and quick.

This is perfect for my ELA class on “technical writing”, which will have students doing research and research projects. Thank you so much for saving me a ton of time!!!

Excellent research focused unit. This unit has everything to help get the students started with their research and work through the project. Having these in Google Slides format is perfect so my students can research and create on their computer both in school and at home without losing their work.
