In recognition of Women’s History Month in March, students at Northeast Elementary School in the Amityville Union Free School District learned about the important contributions women have made throughout history.

Each pre-K and kindergarten class picked a notable female to spotlight. Students did research and decided which important facts should be included on its poster. The school was turned into a women’s history museum as the projects were hung throughout the hallways, highlighting artists, athletes, entertainers, political figures and scientists. Northeast had a museum walk on March 18 as teachers led their students around the building to read the posters.

The selections ranged from historical figures such as pioneering pilot Amelia Earhart and notable chemist and physicist Marie Curie, to contemporary figures like Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
