In honor of Women’s History Month, remote and in-person learners from the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center listened to special morning announcements and read stories to celebrate historic women such as Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Earhart, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Kamala Harris and Rosa Parks. As a correlation to their gravity in motion unit, the students also explored famous female astronauts such as Mae Jemison and Sally Ride.
Lynbrook Kindergarten Center Principal Ellen Postman read to classes about the famous astronauts and students listened and watched astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor read “If I Were an Astronaut” by Eric Braun from the space station. Remote students created and decorated their own space helmets at home to watch the read aloud.
The fun-filled month expanded the young learners’ knowledge of historic women and their positive contributions to the world.
