Around the world, women are accomplishing wonders! Create a 3-D game to highlight notable women in sports, science, politics, and other fields.
A Chinese expression says, "Women hold up half the sky." Conduct a class discussion about what students think of that quote. Ask students how familiar they are with achievements of women from around the world, past and present. Create a 3-D game to help students build their knowledge about women of distinction.
Students research notable women in history, with each person in the class choosing a different person. You will find many women in the sciences, arts, and sports as well as women who are making a difference as writers, explorers, inventors, and leaders. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, students take notes about each woman, including her name, important dates, achievements, and other interesting information.
Students create game pyramids. For each woman, draw three identical triangles on an open file folder, making them as large as you can. Leave a band along the bottom to keep the triangles connected. Cut out the "mountain peaks" with Crayola Scissors. Fold under the outer edges of the two outside triangles to make tabs. Make sure the three sides fit together in a pyramid. Adjust if necessary. Lay the "peaks" flat.
Record information. Students transfer their information to the triangles. Write the woman’s name and dates on one triangle, her achievements on another, and descriptive words on the third with Crayola Fine Line Markers. Color and illustrate each triangle with bright Crayola Twistables. Apply Crayola School Glue to the folded tabs. Bend the triangles around to form a standing pyramid. Air-dry the glue.
Students quiz each other! Present the information on the pyramids to the class. Use demonstrations, pictures, recordings, or other materials to make your person memorable. Now comes the challenge! Mix up the pyramids, students choose one (not their own), and form small groups. Start by showing the name sides of the pyramids. Students tell what they know about this woman? Exchange pyramids with other groups. For more challenges, show only the achievement or description side of each triangle.
