Almost one hundred years ago, Wisconsin became the first state to ratify the 19th amendment. This was due to the hard work of women like Belle Case La Follette and many other female activists. This presentation will provide brief overviews and biographies of Belle La Follette, and other brave Wisconsin activists who played an active role in the fight for equal rights. Following a discussion of these unique women, participants will engage in two, hands on and primary source based lessons that focus on the fight for equality for all at the state and national levels. Participants will receive the materials needed to replicate the lessons in their own classrooms. These activities are geared for upper elementary and middle school classrooms, but can be adapted for all levels of students. Lessons are adapted on an article published in the January publication of Social Studies and the Young Learner.
