Our Susan B. Anthony lesson plan introduces students to Susan B. Anthony. Most students may not have heard of Anthony and most are unlikely to be aware of her accomplishments related to women’s rights. The goal of the lesson is to help students become aware of Susan B. Anthony and the women’s suffrage movement during her lifetime. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create a timeline of the important events in Susan B. Anthony’s life. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Susan B. Anthony, list facts about her life, and define women’s suffrage.
