Teacher Request – Needs Input Before Friday!

This just in:

Our middle school club, Girls Learn International is having a virtual field trip about American Women in Sports, Title IX at our library this Friday. I have been asked to present some statistical data about this subject. Our students are creating a topical scrapbook for their sister school in Afghanistan. Would you have any suggestions how to use BrainPOP with this subject?
Thank you.

    Thanks, Annie!

    Also, check out the Olympics movie:

    There’s some great stuff in the FYI:

    Tab through the 5 different categories and see if you can do anything with those. Maybe your students could pick relevant pieces to write trivia questions for? They could also challenge their audience to take the Quiz before watching the movie, and then let them know their score or retake the quiz after. You can have a lot of fun with the quizzes – I’m happy to brainstorm more ideas with you.

    You could also use the Timeline as inspiration and have your girls create one (or add onto this one) that’s specific to women in sports:

    Hope that helps!

    BrainPOP Jr.’s Biography movie explores the life of Wilma Rudolph, an African-American Olympic runner, and one of my heroes! She was the first American woman to ever win three gold medals in a single Olympic games. You can check out the movie here: http://www.brainpopjr.com/readingandwriting/writing/biography It’s a great way to connect women in sports, writing skills, and social studies.
