For the last Homeschool Hub in the month of March, we studied three interesting women in history for Women’s History Month. I participated in Girl Scouts when I was young, so of course I thought of Georgia native Juliette Gordon Low. I invited local Girl Scouts representative Patrice Devine to come share some information about Juliette Gordon Low and Girl Scouts with us. Ms. Devine told us a story about how Juliette Gordon Low came up with the idea of starting Girl Scouts, and we sampled some indoor s’mores.
The other two ladies we studied were Amelia Earhart and Margaret Knight. Amelia Earhart was the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane, so we made and flew paper airplanes. Margaret Knight was an inventor who patented the square bottom paper bag, so we made kites from paper lunch bags.
