  • Overview

    Women have made vital but often little-known contributions to American history. These lesson plans and videos are based on History Detectives episodes that examine artifacts which provide clues to how women have been integral in the visual arts, in fighting political causes and on battlefields. They offer students opportunities to hold a history-based political convention, create visual arts designs, and do biographical research.
