Who Was? Women’s History Month Book Club

Who Was? Women's History Month Book Club

(4th - 6th Grade)

Number of Attendees:

This program is open to how many Who Was…? Books you can hold/request.

I had 15 participants this month.


Program is one hour, meets monthly.


  • Who was…? Books ( 1 per attendee)
  • Snacks

Description of Program:

Each month I hold a book club for 4th - 6th graders, for the month of March I wanted to celebrate Women's History Month, but could not settle on a Non-Fiction book that that would appeal to all.  AT the end of my February book club, I held 25 Who Was…? Books on a cart, spines down. Each attendee got to pick a book at random. (no fighting over who gets who, you get what you get…) I asked them to each write down 5 fun facts about their Who Was…? Person, which we shared with each other at the March meeting. We did this in lieu of a typical book discussion.


FREE or $20 - we provide water and snacks for the book clubs, but not necessary to run the program.


My Book Club LOVED this idea- will for sure be Adapting this concept to use for other months/book clubs!

Bonus: Television/Projector - Netflix account - There is a Who Was…? Show on Netflix, if you are able to view, there are episodes that feature just women.
