A quick guide top this year’s International Women’s Day resources, including suggestions for their use.
Teach Starter is proud to be part of International Women’s Day 2019.
Our dedicated team of teachers, designers and illustrators have created a range of resources that will make
classrooms buzz while helping champion and celebrate International Women’s Day.
We would love to share some ideas on how to use these resources to educate
and inspire your students.
A simple way to participate in and help promote the day is by decorating your classroom with the
Inspirational Women Bunting, Inspirational Quote Posters and/or the Inspirational Women Profiles.
The informative International Women’s Day Fact Sheet can also be presented and/or discussed to teach
students about International Women’s Day, explore key related themes, learn some very interesting statistics
about women’s equality and discuss what can be done to forge women’s equality in areas like government
A number of learning activities are also available that help students learn about and explore gender-related
issues. These can be compiled to make a complete day of learning experiences, used as special stand-alone
lessons or incorporated into related key learning areas.
For example, students could spend the day working through the International Women’s Day Inquiry Task or
the All About My Role Model Activity Booklet. If you can’t dedicate an entire day to this event, consider reading
one of the stories outlined in our blog 8 Amazing Children’s Books and Activities for International Women’s Day
or substitute one subject’s lesson, for example Visual Art, for the corresponding learning experience in the
International Women’s Day Activity Task Cards.
In 2019, Teach Starter’s International Women’s Day Teaching Resources now include a Gender Inequality in
Education Infographic Poster, an Examining Female Stereotypes PowerPoint, a Challenging Female Stereotypes
Inquiry Task, a Female Gender Stereotypes Fact Sheet, The Women’s Wall of India Reading Comprehension
Worksheet, a Female Participation in Secondary Education World Map, a set of Gender Scenario Task Cards and an International Women’s Day Assembly PowerPoint.
