FREE Women’s History Poetry Writing Activity Template March 3rd 4th 5th Grade


This Women’s History freebie is a fun mini-research and poem writing activity!


Products Included in This Bundle:


Introduce your students to stories of amazing women in history! This Women’s History Month freebie includes a print and digital format to guide your students through a mini-research process (either on the internet or through biographies).

Students use research notes to create a biographical poem called The Important Thing, modeled after Margaret Wise Brown’s The Important Book.


There are two versions of the poem included. Students may research a single woman, or they may research three notable women and create a poem accordingly. I have listed several good websites, so the kids can locate material written for kids.


This poem could be used as a stand-alone activity (great for a bulletin board with some thematic art) or it would make a wonderful addition to a full research report for Women’s History.


Great skills can be found in this activity, such as determining importance when looking for some key facts about the woman’s life, reading comprehension is very important here, as well as computer proficiency skills.
