These classroom activities are designed to complement the Susan B. Anthony topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Important Women

Have students choose a female leader or role model to explore. They may choose someone in their family, a community leader, or a historical figure. Students may want to study a female artist or scientist or explore the First Ladies. Why are these women good role models? What did they do to make changes?

Day in the Life

Have students imagine what life would be like if they lived in the early 1800s. Have them write a diary entry as if they were students during that time. What would they learn? How would their lives be different than today? What would their parents or guardians be doing in the 1800s? Would they still have the same jobs or do the same activities? Have students share their work in small groups or with the whole class.
