In this elementary learning
activity, students will be exposed to a variety of ways in which women, girls and
their families helped to shape New Jersey's history. From working in
homes, strawberry fields, factories to research laboratories, women and girls
have been an integral part of how New Jersey developed into a major agricultural
and industrial center for our nation.
While exploring this activity you
will develop an understanding of gender and class differences.
On the left are important topics
through which you may investigate women's and girl's
involvement in New Jersey's history. Activities for these topics will be
developed in the future.
