See this page from the National Park Service with a list and links for dozens of locations where significant events in the history of women in America took place. While some of these will be familiar, many are not, and the stories of how these locations were critical to changing women's roles in America could make a fascinating study. Scroll down the page to find Women's History in the Parks and a Learn More section.

In the Classroom

You may want to introduce this site to students by showing the Frank B. Cooper Elementary School with a projector or on an interactive whiteboard. Not only is the site something students can relate to, but this could be a tie-in to Black History Month since Mrs. Thelma Fisher Dewitty was the first African American to teach in the Seattle Public School District. Then have small groups of students or pairs locate a historic location that is in your county, state, or a nearby state to read about. Challenge small groups of students or pairs to present their findings of the location using an interactive map tool like Animaps, reviewed here. Students can add text, images, and location stops with Animaps! Then they can create a Fakebook page, reviewed here, similar in style to Facebook about the woman who is associated with the location.
