  1. These are such fun and lovely graphics for Women's History Month. I am stumped on who is pictured in Observe (Sylvia Plath?) and also Lead... Hmmm...any hints?

  2. Thanks so much; I'm so glad you like them!

    Here are some hints: the woman pictured in "Observe" spent much of her time in isolation observing some very intelligent primates. The woman under the heading "Lead" was a civil rights activist and the first African American woman elected to the Texas Senate. Let me know if you need more hints... ;)

  3. Those were perfect hints! Jane Goodall & Barbara Jordan?

  4. Thank you for these wonderful images and discussion points! We used these images to develop a brief lesson plan, and also used the collage to make a downloadable PDF for teachers to print as a poster in their classrooms! We linked to your blog numerous times and the poster has your url on it as well. If you're interested, tjhe posting of the lesson is here: http://info.variquest.com/infovariquestcom/blogvariquestcom/womens-history-month-biography-lesson-3-12

    1. Here's a hint...

      After the woman pictured in "teach" married and left the classroom, she and her husband Almanzo had one daughter, Rose. As an adult, Rose would help her mother write a series of books about her childhood.

    2. Thank you! I got it (with some help from a colleague). Figuring out the identity of all these special women has been fun!
