Study voting rights then have students create a "Wanted" poster focusing on a famous suffragist.
Students research the history and development of voting rights in the United States. Conduct a class discussion about the contradictions between reality and democratic ideals. Why are voting rights so important? Identify prominent suffragists. Have students choose one suffragist in the fight to gain women the vote. Have them explore her life in more detail, and find more information about her role in the women's voting rights movement.
To make a poster about this suffragist, use a ruler and Crayola® Washable Markers to block areas on poster board for a title, portrait, and profile. Create an eye-catching title in bold marker, such as "WANTED" (above the portrait) and "THE RIGHT TO VOTE" (at the bottom).
Use Crayola Colored Pencils to draw the suffragist, referring to resources to make the portrait as realistic as possible. Add color to hair, complexions, clothing, and backgrounds in your own style.
Use Crayola Fine Tip Markers to add information about the suffragist, including her contributions to the suffrage movement. Outline parts of your drawing and add details with the markers.
