California Woman Suffrage Suggestions Activities and Lessons for Teachers:
Download the CA Woman Suffrage Gazette from our website www.nwhp.org and make copies for all your students.
Have your students to look at the map of California counties on page 5 of the Gazette.
Please note that for reasons we haven’t been able to discover Amador County’s results were not included in the list. The number of counties on the map and the tally of the counties that voted will not match.
Ask how many counties are there in California?
Ask how many counties voted yes and how many counties voted no for the Woman Suffrage Amendment?
Ask how they think the county in which they live would vote today?
Invite a local historian or librarian to talk with your class about who worked for woman suffrage in your community.
Have your class write to the community newspaper and request that they write about the history CA Woman Suffrage in your community.
