Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Susan B. Anthony topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Create a Coin

If possible, show your child a Susan B. Anthony dollar coin or photo of one from the Internet. Then have your child draw a coin that commemorates the life of someone who is important to him or her. Your child should draw both the heads and the tails of the coin and could even create more coins featuring other heroes and role models. You can display all the coins together in a collection.

Read a Biography

Together with your child, explore historical figures and leaders who made a difference. Visit the library and select grade-appropriate biographies to read together. Try to choose a wide variety of subjects, including scientists, artists, dancers, civil rights leaders, and presidents. If possible, take a month to explore each person. You may want to do further research online together or visit museums to learn more. You can act out skits about the leaders, write essays together, or create pieces of historical fiction. Be creative!
