For March 1, 2010: Through a collaboration of several federal government agencies, at the Women's History Month for Teachers website, teachers are presented with a variety of primary source materials to use in their classrooms. Pick up a primary source set from the Library of Congress that includes images, sound files, song sheets, political cartoons and maps and charts about women's suffrage in America. Grab one of the "teaching with documents" lessons such as "Little House in the Census - Almanzo and Laura Ingalls Wilder" from the National Archives. Examine art by famous women artists at the Inside Scoop located at the National Gallery of Art. Be sure to explore the numerous collections that are organized and linked for ease of use. This is a great starting point for your Women's History Month activities.
