This month we are celebrating Women’s History Month, so we have created educational materials that feature remarkable women in world history.
As you know, here at Multicultural Kid Blogs we like to celebrate diversity. And we take pride in creating educational materials that highlight the beauty of cultures and individuals from around the world. Our latest activity packets are no exception.

These are just a few of the facts you’ll learn about some of the amazing women in our Women’s History Packets.
