Women’s History Month Activities After School
Students in our after school program celebrated Women’s History Month by learning about the accomplishments of women who have had a big impact on our culture and society.
Group activities incorporated aspects of each woman’s career, so that students could learn more about the field and have a model of what their generation can accomplish in the future.
So far, students have learned about Michelle Obama, Frida Kahlo, and Julia De Burgos, three women who have made significant historical and cultural contributions.
For Michelle Obama, the students learned about the Let’s Move initiative to encourage people to remain active for good health. Then they put what they learned into action by completing various physical challenges.
Students learned about Frida Kahlo in a self-portrait activity that highlighted the importance a safe place.
Finally, students learned about Puerto Rican poet Julia De Burgos and practiced self-expression through poetry.
Special thanks to Hilaury Gonzalez and Kimberly Velazquez for their creativity and effort in helping to coordinate these activities!
