Women's History Month - Dr. Maya Angelou

Dr. Maya Angelou was a bold woman who helped change the world. Dr. Angelou was a civil rights activist, a poet, a writer, singer, dancer, and even a cable-car conductor in San Francisco. Learn about this remarkable woman by watching the read-aloud, then by answering a question about one of her famous quotes. You will also do an activity about a cloud and some rainbow rays. 1. Click the add response button. 2. Click the play button to watch the read-aloud. 3. Listen to her quote. Click on the speaker button. What do you think this quote means? Use the writing tool, recording tool or voice tool to record your answer. 4. On the second slide, think about how you can be the rainbow in someone else's cloud. How can you be kind? Click and move the rainbow rays and tell me how you could be that rainbow. Go ahead and make your own rainbow rays. If you would like to listen to some of her other quotes, you will find some on the third slide. 5. Click on the green checkmark to upload your work.
