The Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing women the right to vote, was ratified on this day in 1920, exactly 100 years ago. On this important anniversary, you and your young history students won’t find a better educational resource than this extensive site developed by the U.S. National Park Service:
There are lesson plans, biographical features on the leaders of the women’s suffrage movement, tours of important historic sites, timelines of the ratification campaign, and much more. In particular, take a look at the great series of one-minute videos “Suffrage in Sixty Seconds” that are a perfect introduction for kids:
Spend a few (literal) minutes with that series of videos and you’ll have brand new history experts in your homeschool and a host of topics to talk about for days to come.
These National Park Service pages contain enough high-quality educational material to do special unit studies through the rest of this centennial year. Take a look and explore!
