Smithsonian Education office has pulled together a great website featuring a multitude of teaching resources on the experience of women in the United States. Each year, the website unveils a new set of materials culled from various exhibits at the Smithsonian museums. A good place to start is the Women's History Month Calendar, which collects events that are taking place in and around Washington, D.C. The Photographs of Women on Flickr area features over 160 photographs of women of prominence in fields such as nursing, politics, and science. There are twelve other sections here, including Exploring the History of Women Inventors, Women in Aviation and Space History, and Native American Women. One particularly noteworthy resource here is the children's bibliography related to materials about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. The areas contain a wealth of lesson plans, suggested readings, and more to pique the interest of teachers, students, and lifelong learners.
