Congratulations, Elizabeth, on completing this woman suffrage history activity book as part of your Girl Scout Gold Star project! We will post it on the Kentucky Woman Suffrage Project’s resource page for teachers too. Many thanks for this great service for our youth.
The Votes for Kentucky Women student activity book was created as part of my Girl Scout Gold Award project. The book is geared toward older elementary-age students and includes important concepts and terms related to voting, citizenship, and our laws. Throughout the book, there are several activities for students to complete while learning about Woman Suffrage. After reading the book, I hope students have a better understanding and appreciation of what an incredible right voting is.
