Fairfield Fifth-Graders Spotlight Female Sports Stars

FF Women's History

To celebrate Women’s History Month, fifth-graders learned about female figures in sports at Fairfield Elementary School. The project was a combined effort led by physical education teachers Danielle Montano and Heather Poetsch and library media specialist Claire Mitchell.

Students researched female athletes and coaches from the past or present. Using Google Slides, they created graphics that resembled trading cards, which were then posted to a bulletin board near the gymnasium. Information included each person’s name, birthday, sport and accomplishments.
