It was never easy to be an ambitious man – to discover, to conquer, or to invent. But, at all times, it was even less easy to be an ambitious woman. That’s why the story of each woman who managed to succeed in her undertaking is filled with wonder and inspiration. It’s worth of being shared and retold. This poster does just that – in a playful comic-style, it introduces children to the topic of amazing women in history.
Print it, let children colour it, read the quotes and talk about what those words mean. Ask children who inspires them most and do some more research on that woman! The women featured are Marie Curie, Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo, Sacagawea, Murasaki Shikibu, Florence Nightingale, Nellie Bly, Jane Goodall, Valentina Tereshkova, Amelia Earhart, Agatha Christie, and Rosa Parks.
By default, the poster should be printed in A3 format (11.6×16.5 inches) – or on two sheets of standard (8.5×11 inch) paper. But you can also scale it down and print on one sheet of paper.
